Oh great... i have 3 FPSs yet to try, lol.

Re: My first Review video!....and a question

Will be checking this out later... awesome! I've got one of these too in a green pouch that I need to try. I'm about 99% sure they are a commercial ration marketing as military... Like a lot of the Russian rats you see out there. You can browse their website and order them yourself. Here's a transla...

Re: Tips for eating an older ration

If you get the whole case, check the TTI sticker first. When trying an this old ration, use your common sense like does it smells suspicions? Are the pouches "swollen"? Do they taste "odd"? Do you get a "numb" feeling in your moth etc. They could be still OK but it´s like a frozen lake - the ice co...

Ok. Ill take a punt at a single meal.
They are great! The freeze dried entrees are bigger and more filling than a normal MRE meal, cant compare to an ORP main since I've never had one but the mcw I've had was great. Let us know how it was and which menu your trying !

Re: Chinese rations

The PLA have a type 09 & type 13 that are official. Green and Tan Bagged. Plenty of reviews of those out there to see for yourself. I'm not sure on that "T13". Never seen that one before, maybe someone else can confirm if civilian. It looks different than the 09/13's i've seen with it's logo but yet...

Re: Remembering Family Heros

One final interesting point. His hometown, Argentia, was the eventual site of a US Naval Base built in Newfoundland during WW2, the land being given to the US by Britain as part of the Lend-Lease Program. It was always a sad thought to know that he had left home in 1940 to fight for his Empire and ...

Here's a few of my family uniforms from WW2. Your browser should "right them" the correct way when opening the attachment. The first photo with the USARPAC insignia (blue background, stars and red arrow) is of my grandfathers. He was an enlisted man that served in the 8th service command in the US b...

Mine was in perfect shape and came from the same batch! What the heck! Looks like you need a tray! There's so many different v...
