Re: Dutch 24 hour ration from 2016

Could you send pictures of the main and pate? Dont think that it has gone bad yet, after only 2 years, unless it stood out in the desert sun for the last 2 years I'll get a couple pictures up in a couple hours, currently out and about. I've not been storing it in optimal conditions, I've not got a ...

Dutch 24 hour ration from 2016

Hey there. I've got a Dutch 24 hour ration with an expiration date of may 2016. I'm just looking for some advice with it.

Re: Info about Menu 16 Chicken Burrito Bowl?

Check in the MRE Reviews section of the forum... Eistee reviewed that exact menu a little while ago: http://www.mreinfo.com/forums/view...

Re: British 24 Multi Climate Trial Ration

Probably a really stupid question, but what are the usual rules? I've never dealt with a ration this old before as far as I know. Absolutely not a daft question. :D Yep. Normally proceed with care, and use your senses. I am always very wary of, and wouldn't eat anything with compromised packaging. ...

Probably a really stupid question, but what are the usual rules? I've never dealt with a ration this old before as far as I know. Not stupid at all! All questions are welcomed here.

Re: British 24 Multi Climate Trial Ration

Ooh, nice find! Counting on how well the box and contents were stored prior to your possession, you'd be surprised at the quality of the contents! I can't say I know much about the multi-climate menu myself, but I'm certain someone will. And welcome! Nice to see someone else from this side of the A...
