Nose bag often used in the army for a bagged meal  O0
Nice one Jon I knew I hadn’t imagined that one  ;)
Touching from a distance, further all the time.

Nose bag presumably originally from horses.
Over hill, over dale. Thorough brush, thorough brier....
I do wander every where

And now for something different:
For me it is always "lunch", irrespective of whether it's a sandwich or two during a walk or at home, or simply a bag of crisps and a biscuit, or something in a pub, or an instant soup and other bits if I'm carrying a stove.
(I have a nasty feeling what you're all going to say now  :-[ )

Nothing wrong with lunch, I have it myself quite often, just not on a mountain  ;D

I use the term ‘Pack Up’ and I remember another northern word ‘Grub’  :)  ie
When lunch is ready “Grub up”
Walking is the world’s oldest exercise and today’s modern medicine.

At Ninthace Towers we say "à table" or "c'est servi".


As for nose bags - the loadmaster used to hand out white cardboard boxes if the plane did not have a galley.


There was the time as cadets we had to go out and rough it in the field for a few days while going through Cranwell.  Fortunately, it was the day after the Summer Ball so I arranged for a 4 tonner to back up to the mess and take away the leftovers.  The Directing Staff were not too happy when they found we were dining on smoked salmon and the like in the field.  They said there was supposed to be a degree of hardship involved - I pointed out that we had only managed to relieve the mess of Italian wine and that was hardship enough!

I actually get that one John lol, my dad was in an army football team back in the 50’s and was always coming out with quips about the other services, none complimentary, but I’m sure it was tongue in cheek  ;)

Same as jimbob, it is Bait for me. Although since I have been influenced by the very sophisticated beefy, I call it Lunch  ;)

In west of Scotland what you would eat up the hill is always called 'your piece'.
And to follow on, one o'clockish is dinner time and six o'clockish is teatime.
Supper B4 going to bed.
I said to a girl in  a cafe once, could I have a piece on ham (bacon sandwich to southeners).
She said is that all I wanted........asked me again.   You've guessed it.....out came a very small square
of gammon.
