Not for civvies

Post by jaimy23 » Wed Jul 18, 2018 2:04 pm

Hi have a few of these chocolate bars from the British 24 hour ration pack they were produced for a very short period of time with the logo "not for civvies" (not for civilians)
It was rare to find one in your pack a bit like willy wonkas golden ticket,
They have been freeze stored for about 8 years now and would like to trade them for any other interesting ration items,
Im based in the UK

I have also a few early 2000s ORPs that still have them, those bars are great to look at and also taste great.
Its cool that you took your time to keep them under such great conditions for such a long time.

Ooh I miss these candy bars, they were great! They started to remove them from ORP's following the operations in Afghanistan and Iraq due to the melting chocolate.
