Re: REAL UK CADET RATIONS!

We have exactly the same rations as the regular forces do, cadets love bringing in pot noodles to supplement their rations, if they have their way every ration would have a pot noodle in it :lol:

VERY RARE Scottish Army rations

Finally found this on the internet, a highly elusive Scottish Army rations, much rarer than finding the Loch Ness monster and the Haggis animal together in the same place !




Enjoy :D

Re: My collection display..

Is that a genuine British boer war type iron ration tin in the middle with a massive MOD arrow ?

Re: New British ORP packaging?

I've heard about it but not seen it myself yet, we are still going through the ration boxes until it runs out then transfer over to bags. I personally think its a good idea, it would be useful emergency water carrier, improvised wash basin and rubbish bag. To date I don't know if there is a flameles...

Re: There is a great "Tushonka" (Beef stew of the highest grade, 525g )

In the UK there doesn't seem to be any problems importing foreign MREs even after spending some time in the Office of Exchange, it wasn't stopped or opened.

Re: Show and tell of foreign MREs

Not in the time I had available there's too many to cook.
I've only got two hours plus NAAFI break to do it.

What I did do is break up the biscuits. Crackers and chocolates, opened the pate, then shared them out.

The cooking will have to wait until another suitable training opportunity.

Re: Ukranian MRE

Interesting comment. Basic but solid rations is a good building block to a better ration.

It did feel a bit basic, separate sealed packs is a good idea.

Re: Ukranian MRE

More photos. Pashtet and Kasha revealed. It seem more basic compared to Russian rations.

Ukranian MRE

Just acquired an Ukrainian MRE direct from Ukraine, initially opened it up to check out the contents. BBE 1st August 2020.

Will open it up further when I get round to trying it out :D
