Subject: RE: Blatant publicity for the Pig's Ear Ale
My grandfather in WW1 cooked a dead piglet in a empty metal Ammunition box in Flanders .
Once cooked it was immediately confiscated by the Company Sergeant Major who had it in turn confiscated from him by his senior officer and so on. Once eaten by who ever, it was traced back to him and he was put on a charge for stealing a Pig.
