Damper is type of bread made over a camp fire,
traditionally cooked in a billie (is that an
Australianism or does everyone know that term?) a
recipie I got from a website has the following

2 cups self-rising flour 
1/2 teaspoon salt 
2 tespoons sugar 
3 tablespoons butter 
1 cup milk

when I was in the scouts we used self raising flour,
salt and water and cooked them in foil, or twisted the
dough around a stick and cooked that over the coals of
a fire. Originally the ingredients would have been
flour, bicarb and water or even beer.
