Anyone seen this before?

Post by Ace Ducey77 » Mon Jun 25, 2018 6:55 am

I recently bought this Ration, Survival, Individual part 1 of 2 and I have not found much on it. I do not know what’s in this, and the only other thing like this that I’ve seen before is the Food Packet Survival Abandon Aircraft. I’m pretty curious of these contents but if anyone knows anything about this, please let me know. Thanks!

Steve1989 reviewed this ration, check his youtube channel. It mostly consists of dehydrated meat bars.

I see videos for similar ones, like the Food Packet Survival Abanfon Aircraft. That’s the only one I have found that is in this kind of container and that has 2 parts. But I’m not seeing anything for this kit, maybe I’m just overlooking it.

It also looks like the Food Packet Survival SA’s, ST’s ...but many of those seemed to be produced about the same years as this, so I wouldn’t think this was a prototype or early version of one of the those survival kits.

I’m just really curious because I don’t think I’ve seen this survival ration before, at least not that looks like this one. So I’m already :twisted: :?: debating about cracking it open or not!!

Here it is.
Norge is correct, can 2 is just the dehydrated meat bars. This ration when complete has been fetching some money in the last couple years.

Just realized Ace yours certainly has a different nomenclature to it! Duhhh on my part.

So perhaps it has different components

Yeah the only thing I’ve seen to compare this too is that 2 part abandon aircraft ration. I have been wanting that set very badly and I would be pretty happy if this was an earlier version, and maybe slightly different? Though I still may open it!! Idk...should I open it?? My curiosity keeps growing!

I showed this to a Coworker and asked if he remembered them...he said he had his butt over them all the time, they were kept under the flight seat.... :D
