In a survival situation you should (dependant upon your physical condition!) set priorities, these being:
a) Against immediate danger - explosions etc
b) Against the elements - hypothermia, etc.
c) First aid.
a) set up signals that can be picked up by searching aircraft, boats,
search parties on foot. (This is dependant upon enemy/hostage
takers in the local area of course.!)
Gather up anything (and I mean anything that is man-portable) that
you can from the wreckage, using the above priorities - blankets, first
aid kits, flares etc.
You can live for weeks without food (the stomach shrinks, hence gas!)
but you can only live for days without water, (we are made of it!)
If it 'walks, crawls, swims, or flies you can eat it - to catch it, dangle,
tangle, mangle or strangle it.
But remember...... - always form an alliance, before someone else does.
Practice makes perfect!
