    Default Canadian issue Emergency ration tin

    Another item from my collection of British & Commonwealth ration tins. Originally designed as a Naval Liferaft ration, these were issued to all branches of the Canadian Forces by the end of the war.

    Complete and unopened. Dated 1945.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Thanks for the comments guys.

    These can still be found fairly easily today for around $20 and I agree they do make a nice addition to a personal effects collection.

    Cheers, Ade.
