WANTED - Rations!


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone! 
I'm looking to buy rations for my collection - I restore them back to there original state, so they will be around forever. I'm interested in any ration packs, but the older the better. I don't mind if the rations are water damaged, leaking or not complete. I'm especially looking for compo rations, but like I said before, everything's cool.

Thank you!

You must have heard of the most succulent British Army compo tinned processed cheese. A must for any connoisseur of good food, by just mentioning its name will bring back memories to many a soldier of the good old compo.

I did have a few cans left in my barn and will dig them out next month when in the UK and let you know.

I have just got hold of some current ration packs courtesy of 4 Scots, they are now packaged in plastic bags. There are now 14 menus which come in 7 boxes box A to Box G each containing 2 menus ie box A has menus 1 & 2 box has menus 13 & 14, there are also 10 vegetarian menus again 5 boxes each containing 2 menus, these are labelled box VA to Box VF.

Apparently when Kraft first produced posseced  cheeses, the other companies called it Embalmed Cheese
