Chief Distaff will hand out ration bags containing the weekend meals to each mess captain before marching into camp or directly thereafter. Every ration will be the same for all messes. Messes will be assigned before the event.
A small pot is recommended (corn boilers like those used in Civil War events are not correct for our impression). An extra kettle for making coffee or tea pot will be acceptable. No frying pans or other pots. Wooden spoons for stirring.
Lunches: Cheese, sausage and bread with raisins or apples
Supper: Stew with veggies and pork.
Water for soldiers is carried in the canteen. Woman may carry small pottery jugs . Any additional beverages must be carried in to camp in period correct bottles/containers or hidden in a canvas bag. (See Kit for an example).
Any stools must be packed in. Tables and chairs are not appropriate for campaigning.
If you wish to put up a tent, you will be in the tent line with the rest of the army. Your rations will still come from the Chief Distaff and meals will be prepared in the campaign camp.
