The Phases of MRE Catsup

I have 3 packs of early-mid 80's MRE Catsup I am presenting. One feels like it may still be good... and alas it was. The only catsup I've ever seen that was still good! Turned red and tasted great! I put it in my fridge and will have with french fries later - and will take pics. The pictures speak f...

Re: Food Packet, Life Raft, Aircraft - DoP 1962

You are welcome! I feel we have come a long way in our military's survival rations here in the US. I hope it is okay but I would like to show an example here on the same thread of a newer 2010 Survival ration that has been reviewed before but not one this fresh. Nowadays, they have those General Pur...

Re: 1980 LRP - Beef With Rice - Full Review

! For some odd reason I can only find this photo in my archives of the cocoa's date code and darn it I can only see 24701 on it and I could have sworn when I took a close up that I cannot find now it said 024701 and I thought it was around September 1980 - but now I have no idea when this was made. ...

1980 LRP - Beef With Rice - Full Review

I am back with another early 80's Cadillac Products - Food Packet, Long Range Patrol. Menu 4 Beef With Rice. Everything was still perfectly fresh and in particular, the lemon corn flake bar... oh my goodness I loved it! I wish I had 30 more of those things. :lol: I for some reason broke my own rule ...

Re: RCW DATING

Here is an High Definition-Style update on a 1998 RCW. I opened one of my babies on this past February, and the reason was I heard the M&M's had bursted open in the -b component and that's all it took for me to say - "Ok I gotta open you". Oh, and the Chocolate Covered Brownie's nuts tend to go ranc...

Re: US Ration Spoons

Hello, I wanted to show something out of my collection. Has anyone seen this before? I hadn't until last year when I got a few of these!

By the way - very cool thread! :D

Re: Yellow Pack HDR - Year 2000 DoP

I will do a preview on one of my Salmon sets to show you the difference. The entre...

More Pics


I took the rest of the mint sucrose tablets with me to work and enjoyed them on my long drives.

This ration is now what, 51 & 1/2 years old?

Neat stuff! Thankyou for looking!
