British WW II 24-Hour Rations – Spam

 

 

"HOUSTON, WE HAVE A (TEMPORARY) PROBLEM."

 

Like the originals, our 24 hour rations come in a box - a special box of a certain dimension and wrapped with a special paper. These boxes are only available from one dealer in the USA; they are made in China.

 

Remember Trump's tariff war with other countries, including China? Well, thanks to the tariffs our little box is not currently available. The dealer has sold out and can't get any more.

 

I'm out too, so I have to suspend sales on the Brit 24 hour rations until (and "if") we resume trade with China.

 

In the interim, please don't order any. I'll have to refund your money.

 

So sorry. I know these are popular.

British Rations Heater - Tommy Cooker

 

HERE IS ANOTHER VICTIM OF MODERN MERCHANDISING TECHNIQUES. MY SUPPLIER MADE A DRASTIC CHANGE TO THE PRODUCT, AND I CAN NO LONGER OFFER IT AS A REPLICA. DITTO FOR THE FUEL. REST ASSURED THAT IF I FIND A NEW SOURCE, THEY WILL BE AVAILABLE AGAIN.

 

 

 
 

British WW 2 Early War Tinned Milk Ration

 

This is a reproduction of the personal-size (5 ounce) tin of evaporated milk, which Tommy was likely to have in his kit to turn a "cuppa" into a steamy delight. This was especially important when using the coarse strong tea found in the Service Blend Ration. A great way to civilize the brew when you and your mates take a break and brew-up.

This early war version comes with a buff label, with dates ranging from 1939 to the early 1940's.

 

PRICE: $3.95
