when i first joined here we had bully beef and hardtack biscuits.
Then we got the then new rations and they where ok
main meal (tinned dog i think), survival bickies, protein bickies, condensed milk, fruit cocktail 125gm,chococlate 50gm, a tin of cheese, 3 coffees and 3 tea's and dunny paper!!!
US rations where a luxury compared though I thought. but franks and beans? pass..
French legione rations are great!!! try them!! bulky and heavy but great tasting everything.
PS we did get a beer ration though.. 2 cans, per man, per day, perhaps... but you could build up a stock and trade it too..
