selling (complete) collection

Post by Nawt » Tue Dec 25, 2018 6:48 am

Hi Guys's,

I've moved to a smaller place and unfortunately lack space to store my (entire) ration collection.
Therefore I'm selling (part of) it :cry:

I'll try to make a list for as far as possible, it's quite a bit anything from 1943 till recent (2018) Dutch, German, French, Belgium, Spain, USA, Canada, Norway, Denmark, UK/GB, United Nations (UN).

A rough indication:

Full cases

Dutch:
dinner cans: 20 400gr. cans/case;
dinner pouches: 20 pouches 400gr./case;
breakfast/lunch: 10 boxes / case, also pouches.
Arctic Rations (prior to ROEK), these are freeze dried as well as the ROEK & LAV.
ROEK (cold weather) :8 pouches / case;
LAV (LRP): 8 pouches / case;
Cold / warm climate rations ( also experimental versions, never issued);
CBRN / NBC rations (soluable in canteen);
Emergency ration's;
Modular rations.

French:
Commando rations;
24 hr RCIR;
RIE.

German:
EPA 24 hr;
lightweight versions/ freeze dried;
Emergency rations (civilian and army Red/green package)
liquid rations water as well as for CBRN / hazardous conditions drinkable from canteen or soluable);
Group/modular rations, complete set's: drink components, breakfast - lunch - dinner module') and a few seperated modules

Canada:
IMP (breakfast/lunch/dinner box)

Spain:
ICR
various components.

USA:
MRE's 1980's -early 2010;
LRRP's brown and green (no full cases, mostly individual rations but various No's / "tastes";
HDR's yellow and pink (salmon colour) ,cases as well as seperate rations;
UGR's;
tray rations (old style metal trays and newer 'plastic' tray's;
MCW's;
RCW's;
MCI's 1970's
Empy case of pork chop's dated 1943;
Shelf stable bread.
USO Operation Care Packages.

Coastguard life rations.

Norway , Denmark.
Mostly freeze dried but also individual 24 hr rations.

Belgium,
individual 24hr ration's.

UK/GB
24hr combat ration's individual;
Group rations;
COMPO ration's.

United Nations (UN)
occidental rations (various boxes);
RAI (Green bags 24 hr).


Most is in prestine condition/ like new, some boxes/cases have signs of handling/storage 'damage' or other.
Stored in cool dry place but no guarantees...Since I'm not the first /second owner of most of the rations. Some have traveled the world.
The dust is for free, but I'll clean them before stuff goes in the mail.

I'll keep you posted.
Send me a message .

I'll have to look up mailing costs, will ship UK/GB, EU (main land) mostly preferred, USA and Canada but will be more expensive. Rest of the world is at own risk because I have no experience with shipping to other countries.
Located in the Netherlands. Local pick welcome, sometimes preferred because of 'delicacy' for example the UK/GB men compo rations.

Kind regards,

Nawt.

I'll edit the list in the the previous post every now and then, depending on developments. keep an eye on it!

Also various seperate rations (no full case)> My intention is to make some 'collector boxes' containing several combat rations from different countries.
Any questions please ask.

Kind regards

I sure can, and will.

Most People are asking for specific rations,dates/productions with pictures.
It was all organised but since it moved everythinig is in one stack. And I lack space to dig through it .

I'll takes pictures of the rations as I dig in and then offer 'm here as they show up. Hoping that will work better.

Kind regards,
Nawt.
