Cool stuff - looks like they're from 1965, right? Wow...what a brave man you are. But at least it was only biscuits and you can pretty much tell my looking that them if they're good or not (I mean, at least they weren't green and moldy).

It looks like they were wrapped in some type of plastic. I'm kind of surprised they still had a tin taste. When I tasted some crackers from a 24 year old MCI ration, the crackers definitely tasted tinny but they weren't wrapped up in the can, they were just sitting there.

So where are these "biscuits delacre" from? Which country?

Delacre biscuits are Belgian although everybody here thinks they're French :lol:

I don't know the "hartkekse" or "pain de guerre" they make (...made?) but their chocolate biscuits are delicious :wink:

Hi all,
I know this is an old post but I had to post these pictures. Not only DELACRE made these tins with biscuits for the Belgian Army, also the firm PAREIN did. parein manufactured biscuits untill 1965 before it fused with another company called De Beukelaer. Delacre makes biscuits under it's own name untill today.
Here are 2 of these rare tins, still sealed after more then 50 years. One dated 1960 and the other 1962. And yes, they are definatly Belgian.

(PS: the Delacre tin is for sale)
