Re: French freezedried Ration R.I.L.

Nice pics! That ration actually doesn't look bad. Hopefully the meals are better than the Travellunch meals that seem to come in other European countries freeze dried rations.

Not calling anyone a liar, but it is very common in militaria collecting circles to claim that something was recently "found in a barn in Normandy" to sex up a sales post for deep-pocketed American buyers.
