Re: LEMON CAKE Can

If that were US issue I would think it would be from a UGR, the only Lemon cake I am familiar with is the Italian Lemon Cake and it is a frozen tray. It has to be stored frozen until thawed and ready to be eaten. That might possibly be from a 10 man British ration?

Re: Cherry Nut Cake Question

I searched for the federal specifications MIL-C-44071 is the one for the nut cakes! You are lucky they had a copy because it is not online. Please let us know how it turns out when you make them! My favorite was the cherry and chocolate.

Re: British Multi Climate Rations Different Trial Menu's

Housil, Yes the mfg. website only lists 20 menu's that I can see. But does not list the menu of Vege, halal, etc... + I am thinking there are other menu variations that are older or possibly even more current than what is listed on their website. I am thinking there is a handout that comes with the ...
