Polish ration ID?

Postby pwfcvf » Mon Oct 16, 2017 9:07 pm

Hey all! I just came into this polish ration (i think?) that I know literally nothing about and I can't translate anything beyond "cigarettes". Could anybody give me some info? Thanks!!!

It is a Polish ration, or rather, meal, but I'm not sure if it is a military issue ration or a "military style" ration for civilian purchase.

Contents are:

-2 x 45 g packs of hard crackers
-200 g can of "Tyrolska" canned meat
-100 g sweetened condensed milk
-1.5 g instant tea
-30 g sugar
-25 g tub honey
-2 pieces (14 g total) hard candy
-1 can opener
-1 plastic lid for canned meat
-1 trash bag
-1 napkin
-1 folder of matches
"I think," said Christopher Robin, "that we ought to eat all our Provisions now, so that we shan't have so much to carry."

Thanks for the info! The story goes that this ration was traded to an American soldier by a polish soldier (since they liked MREs better), so I would be more inclined to believe it’s actuall a military ration.

The label is a bit strange, but the content is the same like smallest ration type "S".
The S is the smallest ration of the Polish army (only cold meal).
