Re: Why not Ramen Noodles?

Some soldiers do in fact bring ramen on field exercises or deployments, or get them sent to them. Mostly it was the old timers in my experience.

Re: Trade American Rations for Australian CR1M’s

If your deployed on a joint mission they can be traded from any of the following ratios (CR1M:MRE): 1:1, 1:2, 1:3! If you are on a FOB with a dining facility, sometimes if you ask the Australian troops they will be glad to give you some free!

Re: early 1980s British ration haul

Would be interesting to know if any of it is edible. While I highly doubt it is, you never know... If stored in the proper conditions maybe. You do have to watch out for those cans though, as they do tend to "alter" the taste and appearance of the food inside.
