Re: Is this a new French RCIR?

This fella that has access to a label printer and makes a lot of unique little rations. Even makes a few custom rations if you ask.

Would likely be something he made up, but I don’t know that for certain.

Re: ISO: Canadian Breakfast IMP

MTL Armory just got a few more individual 2019 Canadian IMP's (Breakfast - Menu A's - #1 to #7) up on their website. I don't know how many they have, but it's like to go fast. You can use my discount of "smitty reviews" for a nice little discount. We're not affiliated, so I don't earn anything. Note...

Re: Food Packet Cold Weather

I am reasonable ;) I just was asking for further clarification, not attacking. Text loses much of the meaning behind the words. I suppose I’ll hope for a positive outcome of your phone call. Given how long OldSmokey was on the horn (hours), I’m not expecting clarity to come from them. In the end, my...

Ironically, I viewed your MCW vid., and this shouldn’t be a “split hairs” analysis. Name changes occur.
What does my modern MCW video have to do with this or splitting hairs?

Re: Food Packet Cold Weather

In my opinion, this was a intermediary ration - IIRC it's menu is actually the same or very similar to the MCW - so all in all the difference might only be the package labeling... I believe this ration was intended to be one step towards a unified MCW/LRP ration as referenced below to reduce procur...

Re: Food Packet Cold Weather

Intriguing, the 2004 “FPCW” came in a MCW pack. Seems likely to have been an error, maybe?

Re: Food Packet Cold Weather

I never admit to knowing more or less than anyone, as that’s a fruitless exercise. All I could find about the Food Packet Cold Weather is that they date from a time after the Meal Cold Weather came about. So not speaking for Oldsmokey, but I think the question is: Is this a mistake, is it a transiti...
