Hi I've researched British army rations a bit I have found some menus for a few ration packs if people are interested. one thing has passed me by there was a trial Ration pack I guess around the 70's or early 80's that was designed for 2 men using a "buddy system" I have a photo from a book, (Survival by Len Cacutt page 152) on the ration box it says: " 24HR RATION PACK G.T. TWO MAN MENU...A..." The ration itself seem to be mostly a mixture of civvy shop bought items mixed with a few Army style packets i.e. there are small tins of veg, fruit, spam, a packet of noodles, but then those familiar to older squaddies green tubes of margarine or condensed milk. does anyone have any more info or experience with this particular ration?
