Congrats! I’ve only ever been able to find one of these. This one is a later dated Individual Ration Pack.
All the best, Gents.

Mine is missing the fruit can, but I've got a box full of accessories, haha. From 1974.

They switched from the box to the tray and plastic at some point from 1976 to 1981. Yours will be in those date ranges.

Yup, I have a few of those and some partials. Found some, and Steve sent me one. One day I'll do a video. Absolutely classic! You've had the pleasure of trying them. The ones I have are definitely gone, haha.
All the best, Gents.
