early k ration box and websight
I like doing German rations so good on you great stuff
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?
