Last ration type item I sent (from Ireland to USA, but same sort of distance, similar postal service) was approximately 23-24 dollars. That was using the Irish post service "An Post" . All the courier services wanted more.
I must add that a commercial seller something like surplus and outdoor or a big eBay seller may have a better Deal worked out with a courier.

I might steer clear of getting British ration packs from Surplus and Outdoors anymore. They are no longer shipping them in the military packaging, or are removing all military markings, sometimes damaging contents. I was in contact with them about it, and they were supposed to send me some empty boxes for display, but never did. The last few times I ordered from them it took a month and a half, when the previous four orders only took about a week. I don't know what happened, but it's really gone done downhill. I'm done using them.

Thankfully I haven't needed to use them for British rations, just gave it an example that would be relatively widely known. That experience you had is not ideal at all and it seems like something they should have notified people about

Pretty sure I've got a empty box or two kicking around if you want them mate.

I've got some British rations heading my way pretty soon from another source, but I really appreciate your offer! :D

For sure! I had multiple dealings with them previously, and I was always very satisfied. Quick shipping, well packaged items. It was weird how all of a sudden it of changed for the worse. I asked them why they suddenly stopped shipping them in the intact military boxes (even before, they always ripped the top flaps off that said "MOD Property"), and told them that they might make some people mad if people are buying them for their collections, but they never responded.

thanks for the tip on surplus and outdoors that was the only place i could find that seemed to always have them in stock, but if their opening them before they ship them thats no deal.
