Zero, nothing? On a few thousands members everyone enjoy only another one M1 helmet or simple canteen cover made in 1941?

 

Ahhhh ;(

The only vintage sweets I have are rations related but I would love to see some commercially available war time sweets.

Thanks for contributions guys. These Ration D Hershey's are very nice! 

 

Dogsbody - nice Asstored Charms. It is interesting about evolution of package from early war to late:

Hi Jerry,  here's a couple out of my collection, sadly the internal ingredients are ' melting ' away, I wrapped them in see-through kitchen wrap to try and preserve them but they have continued to disintegrate.  Thankfully I caught photos of the wrappers in time to record them.

 

regards lewis.

That charms roll of mine is a bit of an oddball. Besides the silver wrapper it has the 1944 beige outer wrapper but underneath that it has a colourful wrapper which I believe to be of post war and Korean war era. Why it was done I don't know. Maybe to pas it off as a WW2 example? Until I know for sure I'll leave the beige wrapper intact.

Nice examples Ken, I like the MARS! 

 

Probably it is reason why not so many survived in 70+ years :(

 

Dogsbody - that is interesting. WW2 examples are in tan paper wrap. Maybe this was repacked after the war also... 

 

regards,

Jerry
