For me, any WWII ration is a holy grail. Only on I have so far sadly is this guy :(.

Hopefully I'll have more WWII rations in my possession one of these days, especially a K ration, that's my bucket list holy grail lol.

Ken, I actually had a few of those back in the mid 90's. I am not 100% sure but my guess is that they were produced for use in either Somalia or Bosnia. These were the generation before the yellow packaged HDR's.

*Edit -->

Looks like it was Bosnia!

How do you know the date on these cold weathers? I found some for sale that look just like this, but there is no date that I can see.
the 1989 rcw was only made by rafco,and if you read the menu list on the rcw you will see a difference
here is the 1989 rcw

and this is 1992 rcw

Thanks. The ones I found were made by Right Away Foods. Any idea when those are from?
