Re: The 9 Foods That ISIS Fighters Eat

There is one component on this food schedule missing: Captagon


With all joking aside, I find this absolutely fascinating.

Re: Globe Equipment Lifeboat and LifeRaft Ration

That was is pretty good shape for 1956. The malted milk tabs in that can is such a unique part of this one. And still being edible/palatable is not super common. I know that flavor and it's pleasant and satisfying. Like malted dried milk candies with enough sweetness to call it a candy. When softene...

Have 3 different WW2 Rations (for trade only)

I have a May 1945 02. Operation Ration in rough shape. It is good for display long term if restored. I will give that option/choice to the next potential owner. Then a K Ration Dinner. Presentable shape except 2 bug holes on the front. It has never been opened. And finally a January 1940 US Field Ra...

Re: Need help indentifying this ration. (Katastrofeprsjon)

That is a fantastic lead on where to start, thank you Eistee! This is a very nice example of that ration. Very curious to see how it has held up in the last 59 years or so. After some more research I will then check it out - and will report back. *Edit after re-reading your post. It has whey powder ...

Need help indentifying this ration. (Katastrofeprsjon)

Hey everyone, I was wondering if anyone could help me ID this ration? I understand it is a civilian ration used for preparedness of various disasters? Of course it is Norwegian - but now to confirm it's scope of purpose and if it is actually civilian. Any help or input would be fantastic! I am tryin...
