RAF Emergency Flying Ration MKII tins

Article about: The back stamp is OK. But always check for any tampering to the front to see if any date has been removed. I guess you are interested as I have seen the one for sale too. That one looks fine

    The back stamp is OK.

    But always check for any tampering to the front to see if any date has been removed.

    I guess you are interested as I have seen the one for sale too. That one looks fine to me from the pics.

    Cheers, Ade.

    In the last month or so I have seen three of them for sale. Had concerns someone was making them up. The repo guys are getting so good now its scary. Many Thanks again.

    I don't see anyone making the whole tin. These are far too good. As I mentioned before, the main concern would be a tampered with date. I see the E Bay one made 78.

    Cheers, Ade.

    I have written a small article in this month's Searcher magazine on this subject.
    Incidentally, I bought a complete tin Mk. IV emergency ration for the princely sum of 2!

    Can anyone explain when / how "Air Ministry Emergency Rations Type S" was used and what its contents were? Also, if anyone has any general information on emergency rations utilised by Bomber Command Crews (1943 / 1945) I would be very interested in hearing from you.

    Any help would be much appreciated

    Regards

    Pete

    Hello Pete
    I don't know if this will be of any use, but I (also) recently posted a piece on my blog:

    Whatever anyone is prepared to pay, I suppose.
    I haven't opened it yet ... but am sorely tempted!
