I think it would have to be the original WW2 ration items in my collection. I keep these under glass for display only. The K-ration (breakfast unit) items that are the crown jewels of my collection came to me as an amazing surprise from our very own steve1989. Also included is a sealed WW2 D ration. The only item missing from the K ration is the main, which had corroded away long ago as the mains usually have with the K rats.

Thanks! Just keep your eye on the prize. They are out there, and the fact that they are hard to get makes it all the more special when you do get one for your collection.

I'm doing alright, still on the hunt!
How are you doing my man?

And and a Korean War era B-2 Unit?! Man! I want a fighter pilot emergency one, because my great grandfather was a bomber pilot during the korean war and it would mean the world to me to have it on my display. He was shot down and held as a P.O.W for 18 months. He was beaten everyday, and for weeks on end would be shoved in a box 3-3 feet. He told me he would do geometry on the walls with charcoal to stay sane. When he ran out of charcoal he wrote with his finger nails. Crazy stuff man, crazy stuff. But yea if you could keep your eye out for some Korean war era stuff, that would be much appreciated.
Cheers,
Simon Cross

I could be better. Fighting a bad cold at the moment.

Wow that is crazy. My grandfather was a drill sergent during the Korean War. Can't imagine figfting in a war. Ill definitely keep my eyes open for you and let you know if I come across anything. There are a few Korean War B-2 and 3 Unit rations on eBay left. That's where I got mine. Not sure how much you are willing to spend at the moment but this one is the cheapest one listed so far. Take care.
