-Fruit, No. 10 cans (apricots, fruit cocktail, peaches, pears and pineapple)

-Citrus juice, two 48 oz. cans (grapefruit juice, orange juice and orange-grapefruit juice blend)

-coffee 2 pound can

-soup, dehydrated 4 pound can

-sugar, granulated 4 pound can

milk, evaporated, twenty 14 1/2 ounce cans

Some 97,500 units were said to have been procured in 1943 and 1944.
