Hey everyone, I reproduce all sorts of US military rations from WWI through vietnam.

I am currently looking for the dimensions of the WWII C ration accessory packet found later in the war. Could anyone provide me with a length and width of the package?

Thanks

Well I found some measurements and set about making some reproductions for our late WWII displays this afternoon. These started getting put into C rat boxes in late 1943, there seemed to be four major variations. Two packs had green or blue print, they contained water purification tablets, one set also had a can opener and another contained salt tablets instead of the water purification tablets.

I produced all four variations, if there is a version I missed let me know and tell me what you guys think of the repros!

Awesome repro's! Very nice job...my collection is limited to Vietnam c-rats and later. Can't afford the ww2 stuff...
