Re: 1980(ish) Natick Labs Prototype Emergency/Assault Packet (Marine Corps)

is there a chance to see pictures of your collection ? :D cheers ken Sure but its nothing overtly special, kind of a general walk from the M1916 "kit" going forward. The older I get, the more I realize how important the logistics of Meals come into everything and are a direct representation of that...

Re: 1980(ish) Natick Labs Prototype Emergency/Assault Packet (Marine Corps)

Very nice :D :D did it cost a lot? cheers ken Unbelievably no! I fell into this by accident. I live close to Gettysburg PA, but not really a big "Civil War" collector/guy. My historical interest is usually Span-Am war going forward. This weekend had a large Civil War Militaria Event, and my wife an...

1980(ish) Natick Labs Prototype Emergency/Assault Packet (Marine Corps)

Rations Gods smiled upon me today for a myriad of ration things but, this one is off the charts: 1979-1980(ish) Prototype that Natick field for trial.

Every Cigarette Brand used in the MCI from 59, till the end in 72

https://i.ibb.co/qYjxMPR/IMG-0676.jpg For reference: I'm only the owner and "caretaker" at this point in history, was not the collector who had the foresight back "then" to go through all those accessory packs to put this together. I thought I was doing well with the few usual samples I had from th...

Re: "MRE 1" is common accepted history wrong about 1981 for introduction?

Thank you! Yes the "2-year" inspection was odd to me. It's funny I didn't even realize the date/significance of the date until I got home and was like "what the heck". I just wanted a Pre-FRH type "flat box" MRE case to use for display in the back of my M151A2 to be period correct for the early 1980...

"MRE 1" is common accepted history wrong about 1981 for introduction?

Well since this is the best site for the "historical" discussions. I believe accepted history for "production" of MRE version 1 begins in 1981 Interesting find yesterday to add to my collection: https://i.ibb.co/wgrL4pK/early-mre-1.jpg https://i.ibb.co/zZ5mCz1/early-mre2.jpg Or is this from the orig...

Opening the known 3rd case of the Long-Life aka LRP II

Hi, For those that have been following the thread and detective story and documentation on these uber-rare 1990 prototypes, I opened the "known" 3rd case that exist (the one I have). To the earlier post, I have had no success in finding any further. I have been at multiple Militaria/Military Vehicle...
