SAS disguise with use of Bisto


By VIRGINIA WHEELER
February 10, 2007



SAS soldiers who ran out of camouflage cream have been on secret missions — smeared in GRAVY.

Our elite troops found the meat sauce worked as a skin-darkener after one soldier spilt it on his arm in the mess room.

They have nabbed 100 suspected insurgents during raids in the Iraq capital of Baghdad this month — while smelling like roast dinners.

Bisto granules are now used regularly instead of MoD-issued Fast Tan.

An SAS source said: “Surveillance is very difficult in Iraq. We go to great lengths to change our appearance.

“We use cream to darken our face, dye our hair black and use brown contact lenses.

“But when Fast Tan ran low, the lads suggested using Bisto after one accidentally discovered it did the trick.

“The gravy smell is pretty off-putting — but it works.”


Who ahhhs wins ... how Bisto kids in the TV advert
would look as elite SAS soldiers

As I'm using some in my beef stew at the moment, wouldn't good old OXO cubes do the job just as well?

Better than black pudding.
