If you have any still sealed GS rations I would pay you handsomely for them. Send me a PM if interested.
Steve, if this comes off, we all look forward to seeing you do your thing!

Re: 24hr. Singapore rations for sale

Price and shipping aren’t too bad.
Could you do an estimate for shipping to Australia?
Might be interesting to try.

Interesting that the fuel is from ADI Mulwala, usually known as a munitions / propellant ...

Re: HELP! Australian CR1M 2011-2012 - Safe to eat?

Old CR1M packs don’t keep well, not nearly as well as MREs for example. The temperatures they are kept at are likely a factor, but the packaging used is not nearly as durable as the American packs. I guess we didn’t have a space program to boost our packaging industries! The tinned fruit usually cor...

Interesting First Aid instructions - first, "Stop Breeding"

Re: Gotta love ebay.

Wow, some vintage menus there. “Ham slice” and “Pork chop”. Love to see a list of what you got and the old brown ones too.

Re: Napoleonic MRE

I always remember the elegantly named Portable Soup:

The precursor of the bouillon cube that’s still in some international packs, sometimes called “soup or gravy base”.

Re: Latest CR1M Contents of a 2016 - 2017 pack.

Thanks for a great review. The format was fine and very informative. Interesting you got the pack from MRE Mountain, and had it sent back to Australia... I wouldn't have thought of that! I've been checking out the local eBay sellers, but dates can be hard to be sure of. Look forward to more reviews....

Australian CR1M 2003/4 comments.

Hi all, My first post as a newcomer from Australia. I have enjoyed Steve1989's Youtube work, and finally joined up for the forums. I have picked up a few US MRE's to check out in the last year or so (still to dare to open the 2008 Menu 4 Cheese and Veg Omelet!). The first MRE I ever tried visiting t...
