    Default British Horlicks tablets "ration" tin

    Hi Guys, this one, while strictly speaking is not a "ration tin" as such, but it is more a clever bit of marketing by the makers of Horlicks

    There also exists a version with "as supplied to the ARP".

    But it is still a nice wartime tin in good condition.

    I don't think you can buy Horlicks tablets today, but I remember them as a kid in the 1960's.

    Cheers, Ade.

    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader

    Alas, Horlicks stopped u.k. production of these yummy tablets in the 80's. They are still available in the States and Hong Kong and Malaysia available in chocolate or original flavours. These days they are called Horlicks 'Malties'.
