Rare old norwegian rations?

Post by Robin heum » Sat Dec 08, 2018 10:46 am

Hello i have gotten hold of two Norwegian rations i have never seen before.
one is apparently from 1952 and the other one is from 1992.
the 1952 ration i have no information about other than it is a stay behind ration and was made in order for the troops fighting behind enemy lines during a war with the soviet union.
and the 1992 ration i dont know alot about other than it was too expensive for the norwegian army to make and they didnt make it for long, and it might contain red wine?

i was hoping someone had any more info on these rations?

the white wrapped one is a stay behind ration as you stated,the 1992 ration do not contain red wine.and these was the trail run of the Norwegian army before they started the FR
program,its suppose to be 2 boxes a smaller with crackers,cocoa and so on.

"SR92" ration of Norway was reported at the old Japanese book.
"SR92" resembles 1992 rations of Robin.
And those menus are also alike.
