5 in 1 Small Detachment 1957 DoP

Postby steve1989 » Wed Feb 22, 2017 7:25 am

It's a tad late - well..the next day now. It's been an adventurous unboxing of this elusive beauty.

And it was a real treasure trove... edible peanutbutter and the bread was perfectly fine.

The coffee, cocoa, and cigarettes sublime.
5 soft packs of Camels.. score.
They smell of gardenias and smoke smooth like heaven - the secret is out...and aged tobacco is it..and it's really something.

The gases releasing from some of those cans... i misted my bedroom. Smells like corn & green beans in there now.
Wonderful.


Tasty smokes, smooth coffee, and the gum...oh wow!

What an experience!

More photos to come. Now it's time to get to bed.

More neat & rare oddities to come. Until then, take care everyone! :)

Ps - here are 2 random extras. Coming up soon, a look into a WW1 Hard Bread - also, look at that strange acc packet from an MRE. Neat, huh?

That looks absolutely amazing!
