The military spread tube cracked and any excessive heat woulda made it leak it's petrolium like substance on everything. And the jelly packets started to leak.

The acc packets have gun cleaning patches & Viceroy cigarettes.

Heating up water for rehydration now. About to start chowing down. Wish me luck.
I wish you have a nice and diseasefree meal, enjoy this rare gem.

P.S. Is that a cat litter shovel in the last pic????

NIce pics! Wow, that is a really cool ration Steve. Sucks about the military spread and jam too. That military spread I am thinking is probably similar to the "butter substitute" that comes in the EPA's.

Two things I noticed here:

1) Definitely uses a lot of MCI components, or components from group ration kits. Whoever designed this might have a great idea from the 5-in-1 ration before.

2) Bears resemblance to a very early UGR dinner ration, minus the self heaters or tray ration heaters.

I'm going to guess this unit might have been fielded to smaller platoon or squad size elements in place of MCI's, or if MCI's weren't being issued. Though I'm having hard time figuring out if this unit would have been carried by some guy in his rucksack, air dropped, or dropped off by the re-supply truck at a rally point. Judging by the weight and size I can't see this is as being thrown in a ruck.

When I saw the ration my first thought was of it as a forerunner to today's UGR-E, which feeds up to eighteen people. But no, I can't see anyone humping the ration. Most likely air-dropped, tossed from a helicopter, or brought by a supply truck/boat/whatever.

Just saw the video on YouTube, Steve. Great job as always!

I was really anxious to see the review on this thing after I read that you bought it.
