Re: Anyone ever try the Country Captain Chicken?

Yes, we used to call it "Country-Crapt'In-Chicken". It was not very good. But still when you compare CCC to the veggie omelet that came later, CCC was much better!

Re: What is this ration?

Norge is correct. I actually tried one of these in the mid-90's. I had a full ration - I found that the cans had leaked "tin" or "silvery in color" into the items in the cans. It was really bad for things like the "boned chicken" IIRC. So don't expect to be able to eat this thing just FYI.

Re: Quiggins Kendal Mint Cake

I found this blog post with that brand of Kendal Mint Cake and it has an paper insert that dates the ration pack menu to 95/96: https://hatchfive.wordpress.com/2016/07/09/british-army-boil-in-the-bag-ration-pack/ So that said, if the menu sheet does indeed come from the ration in the picture, then t...

Re: FR 2000 Field Ration

What you have is a standard (although early version) of the Norwegian 24 hour FR2000 ration.

You can read more about it here:

Re: MCW’s, what’s your favorite menu??

I got a question. Are the mcw really worth it? If I get some it would be a case. So £70 + 70 delivery. For that cost I could get 24 brit rations. Nope! I can attest that they are in my opinion not remotely as good as a UK ORP! Especially if you can find the UK Cold Climate ORP's. The trade ratio is...

Re: The Holy Grail of MREs/Rations?

I am not 100% sure but my guess is that they were produced for use in either Somalia or Bosnia. These were the generation bef...
