[The following Italian Combat Rations pages and pictures can be found in their original form at the "Die Kampfzuteilung" web site, whose webmaster graciously allowed me to repost them here. I have reproduced the pictures and done a rough translation of the Japanese text into English. The translations are not exact but should get across the spirit of the original text.]
