Better to plead for forgiveness than ask for permission... words to live by. Hahaha

I ended up not getting this... it went for a price that I just couldn't justify.... $160 Canadian plus shipping and import fees... my wallet ain't that fat today. Hahaha

These rations are pretty rare! No idea if it would still be edible though, (probably not sadly...) The newer UK Cold Climate rations are A++++, absolutely the best cold weather rations I have ever tried!

More info about what they contain here (last page);

I ve used a lot of these rations in my time ,they broke down well and were good as a light patrol ration ,in fact the mains were made in New Zealand and are very similar to the ones in the Aussie patrol ration reviewed here a few weeks ago davy
