Re: French ration

On the top, "ouvrir" means "open"

On the bottom "armee de l'air" means "air force". Other lines, roughly translated, mean "unitized survival ration", and "each unit contains two rations".

“The height of German military superiority during WWII had a beginning ...” I see it again. I see you posted a lot of stuff. I reiterate what you highlighted. Despite long pages of wiki articles (which I did not source for this) and at the expense of losing track of it, let me know what your questi...

Re: Ever heard of rations from poorer/3rd world countries?

Where do I mention World War II? The following is from your initial post in this thread. "The height of German military superiority during WWII had a beginning (will give rough but, accurate dating) began around 1880 with the development of the Schlieffen Plan which outlined Wehrmacht military oper...

Re: Ever heard of rations from poorer/3rd world countries?

Howdy! Excuse my ignorance but I was wondering if y’all have ever seen/heard of rations from exiled/poor/3rd world countries. Just some names off the top of my head: North Korea, poorer African countries like Niger, Sudan, etc. I appreciate the help, I’ve always wondered what their rations would be...

Re: Buying MRE legalities & USDA Confiscation

Went to the commissary this morning. They had cases of TOTMs and MREs for sale. Believe commissary has been selling quite a few rations since the ChiCom Flu hit.

I was in our local commissary last week. The MRE section was bare. Empty. Stripped. Not even a single Veggie Taco Pasta TOTM left. Even before this recent madness, full MREs were edging up to over $10 each or $120+ a case. Went to the commissary today. Plenty of cases of TOTM's available, both Worn...

Re: Shopping for MREs at our local military supply
