Re: EXTREMELY RARE BRITISH "SPECIAL FORCES" RATION

In my opinion this is not a Special Forces ration, but just a early issue 12hr ration pack. I think the only SF ration that I have heard of them having is a "Jungle" variant of the operational ration pack. But not that I have never seen the Jungle ration in person.

Re: WTS French RCIR 24 Hour Rations

Same thing it's always been. Buyer beware I agree, these are implications for buyers. However its a bit more ominous for US based sellers who have a business model based on importing & selling such items. In my opinion, I think unfortunately that the more sellers we see selling/importing in bulk su...
