The metal one is a West German pilot ration 😁
Hey I was close 😌
Can I ask any info on it? Like how you got it? The old German ones are my fav!
bought it on the german ebay kleinanzagen.

German Epa from 1972
That so sick. If you ever wanna sell that or ones like it (for some reason) you know who to ask. Lol. It’s worth a shot.

I'm at work right now and don't have a pic to upload, but I'd have to say the coolest ration I own is an original WW2 K-ration. On a side note, the coolest ration-related item I own is a Civil War folding mess spoon (original).

Throwback. I had to fight to get “My Own Meals.” They sold them to me reluctantly. And they were a bit overpriced then and still are. But they were very good just maybe not enough calories for the price. How it went down can be read here: viewtopic.php?f=10&t=1134&hilit=Jfko6
