Thanks Pat. I did look on the net but if anyone is still making it, they're not advertising to the on-line community. It sounds absolutely disgusting and I'd definitely prefer the Bovril.
(Does anyone know what a cup of Benger is?)
Benger's food was (still available??) invalid food - powder mixed with hot milk to make what could be described as a thick milky drink or rather thin porridge. It was very easily digestible - I think it was given to babies as well as invalids. Don't know if it's still around - I remember it in the 60's when my grandmother sometimes had it.
