Food Packet, Survival, General Purpose

I picked up this nicely preserved 1968 dated survival ration this week. Seems to be in great shape.

 

Any idea what these look like inside?

That's pretty cool! Thanks for posting that photo RWW!

 

What are the two items on the right side?

These contained 4 food bars chosen at random from a list of 6 bars, Fruit Cake, Chocolate Fudge, Cornflakes, Rice and Cornflakes, Chicken Flavor, or Cheese and Potato. They also contained a packet of coffee, sugar, and soup and gravy base. In addition to the key on the bottom of the can, there would have been a P-38 can opener taped to the top. The preferred method of opening was the can opener so you hav a bigger vessel for cooking , digging, collecting water, etc. I cropped the soup and gravy mix out in the 1st picture by accident.
