GDR/DDR airborne bars

Post by koerky75 » Tue Apr 23, 2019 12:40 pm

Does anyone know anything about this? I can't find anything or I'm not looking well. This is an emergency ration of the GDR/DDR airborne troops. They are from 1989 and are still closed. Are they common or rare? There are 6 bars in a metal case

They are quite rare. I have several. I do not know if they have been documented properly as to contents etc.

As I said, I don't think anyone has documented the full contents. I do not know of any reviews on this ration. You should send one to Steve.

Nothing rare. They were/are sold on ebay.de for €10. They taste(d) like card bord. You can keep them for display, but I wouldn´t dare to eat them.
