The later war cans were put into cardbord sleves to stop them from crushing the stuff in the plastic bag but i am not sure if these cardbord sleves were used in the early k ration boxes. Any one happen to know if they were??

As far as I know they were...

Take a look here for loads of info and discussion on rations...

I have made a complets set of late war k rations but they are they type which were not used in d-day

You may be correct on that but here is some more info on 'morale' boxes.
They seem to have had some exposure earlier than was originally thought?
