Re: Help with identifying (and possibly dating) a ration tin

The stamped name on the can is throwing me off... Not sure if I have seen a US ration stamped like that.

Re: Strange UK UN 24HR Halal ration

They are marked "UN Consumption only". Hence I bet they were probably made by "Vestey Foods" or one of the other UK ration contractors for UN troops.

Not calling anyone a liar, but it is very common in militaria collecting circles to claim that something was recently "found in a barn in Normandy" to sex up a sales post for deep-pocketed American buyers.
