Item #719

Special offer of very unique daily US rations. Complete US day ration, completly outstanding. This amazing full day ration weighs above 750g and will surely feed you for more than one day. We checked all the details of that properly waxed and sealed boxes in nicely looking wrapper boxing, containg all that detaily sealed chunks in cellophane and properly measured crackers and all the components chosen by original manufacturer and so many more... AND WE ARE AMAZED by the effort made by our partner manufacturer, so we proudly offer this set (Breakfast + Supper + Dinner) in our eshop.

"The U.S. Army decided on standardization of all the field rations in its inventory. The Mountain Ration, Jungle Ration and the 5-in-1 Ration were discontinued and superseded by the 10-in-1 Ration. From May/June 1943 all rations nomenclatures became the "Ration, Type …". This was also applied to the K Ration and the printing on the outer carton was changed accordingly. In July 1943 a roll of toilet paper was added to the Supper unit, Soon after, the number of sugar tablets in the Breakfast and Dinner units were increased from three to four tablets. In the fall of 1943 the D-bar was replaced with a Sweet Chocolate bar. Orange juice powder is sometimes included as an alternative to the lemonade powder. The sugar in the Dinner units could either be four individually wrapped tablets, or a package of equal amount (23 grams) of granulated sugar. A warning against malaria was approved for the K Ration's outer carton in February 1944. This warning was later also printed on the matchbook cover, although the blank matchbooks are also still used." More on http://www.kration.info/.

Our reproductions are copying the original K rations as much as possible and are composed of three wax dipped units – meals (breakfast, dinner, supper). Each meal includes approximately 4 ounces of canned product, biscuits, confections, gum, beverages with sugar,cigarettes etc. Try them! Actual edible content, sold for display use.

Everything is properly sealed so you will get that unique feeling of opening something prepared as original rations.

This set is suitable for early years 1942-1944.
