SOLDIERS in Britain’s biggest Army base are threatening to revolt over their terrible quarantine grub – including cold burgers without buns.
Around 400 squaddies are in quarantine at the army’s megabase in Catterick, Yorks, after an outbreak swept through the base.

Isolating soldiers moaned the food would arrive cold
The soldiers are threatening to down arms over the meals as morale hits rock bottom.
A source said: “They hear a knock on the door and there’s a styrofoam box of food left on the floor, and it’s always cold as it takes 40 minutes to come from the kitchen.
“The portions are small and the food is often overcooked and dry.”
One meal was a cold burger and a handful of soggy fries – not even a burger bun.
An Army Spokesperson said: “We work closely with our contractors to ensure personnel receive balanced and nutritious meals.
“We welcome feedback on the quality of meals provided and if necessary will hold our contractors to account.”

The source added: “It’s shocking – I wouldn’t feed that to my dog.
“And they’re all stuck in their rooms so they can’t even order a takeaway to stop their hunger.
“It’s like they’re in a zoo – it’s eat it or go hungry.
“I question the nutritional value in these meals.”
An Army source said the meals were being looked into following complaints.
Catterick Garrison is the largest British Army garrison in the world, and is home to around 13,000 service personnel and civilians.
