    Wow, that's some find! Especially with the corned beef still inside! I did a quick bit of google searching on the brands of the corned beef in the tins, I didn't find anything out about the Emery Brand stuff on the right, but the Fray Bentos brand stuff, made by the Oxo company who still exist, definately did exist during the First World War, and Oxo's website states that they did supply products as part of British troops' rations. So those could well be tins of corned beef that were left behind by the British army in 1916, and if they didn't fancy them back then, I don't think anyone's going to want to eat it now!

    I have/had a bunch of old MCI ( Meal, Combat, Individual ) U.S. Ration cans from the 1960's. All of the the "meat" ones the cans swelled up and smelled horrible when opened.
    The crackers, biscuits, chocolate, pound cake, etc were still good. The cheese and peanut butter looked ok, but smelled odd. I still have a box of cans left.
    My kids got all excited when i opened a can for them recently.
