Owned and operated by disabled American Veterans  


We are ReproRations and we specialize in making and selling accurate reproductions of military rations from World War 2 and a few items from World War 1. Our reproduction rations have been purchased by re-enactors, collectors, educators, historians, museums, movie and tv film companies, and by nostalgic old veterans. We've shipped ReproRations to all 50 states and to countries all over the world. Our rations are fresh from the grocery store, and are presented in replica labeling. It looks authentic and it's edible too!




The wheels of progress continue to turn, and it gets harder and harder to find supplies that will make a close reproduction of rations from the previous century. Metal cans are the latest casualty, with poptops appearing everywhere. For most items, it's virtually impossible to find stuff in an old fashioned can anymore. Nothing but poptops!

I can no longer provide cans of tomato soup, beanie weenie, or chili mac, since they've been poptopped or discontinued. I'll do my best, but my range of offerings is shrinking. So sorry!

At last!
A Mess Kit Strap for the German mess kit. Looks 100% authentic.

We've sold more than 200 replica German WW2 mess kits in the past years, but it wasn't  until I was recuperating from my heart attack that I found a real WW2 German mess kit strap for sale. I paid way too much for it, but then, this wasn't just for my collection; I wanted to share it with our customers.

I have since contracted with a custom uniform firm, which copied my original strap with complete fidelity. I showed a sample to George (our R&D guy) and he couldn't find a single flaw!

The picture at left shows one of the straps, in place on one of the two remaining mess kits in my collection. You'll notice that I found the correct paint for the authentic Heer look. I share the paint secret on the Germany WW2 page, in the strap listing.

Here They Are!


During 2015 we made a major effort to expand our WW1 offerings. We now have a reasonable selection of  reproduction World War I rations, from England, France (shown at right), Germany, and Austria. We've even been able to decorate our pictures with authentic WWI gear, much of it actually uncovered on the battlefields of France and Germany.

Check our GI rations. We have a half dozen different varieties -  all authentic looking, all fresh from the grocer and all extremely edible.




Japanese WW2 Rations

We originally offered Japanese WW2 rations in sets only. We changed that, and are now offering the items individually. We hope you will find this more convenient.

We added to the line as well. We added cigarette boxes and waterproof safety matches, with cover designs straight from WW2 Japan. In addition we are using a foxy new printing process for both matches and cigarette packets, highlighting the beauty and interest of these must-have comfort items. These too are now for sale.

Check them out at Japanese WW2 Rations.



British WW2 Composite Rations

Here is a selection of Brit WW2 "Compo" rations. We offer several different items, each listed separately.

While compo rats were issued at the squad level, various items routinely showed up in the kit of individual soldiers, so adding some of these to your personal collection will simply increase the authenticity of your kit and the diversity of foods available in the field.
