Original U.S. WWII Unissued "C" Ration Biscuits in Wrapper

Item Description

Original Items: Only One Available. The C-Ration, or Field Ration, Type C, was a prepared and canned wet combat ration intended to be issued to U.S. military land forces when fresh food (A-ration) or packaged unprepared food (B-ration) prepared in mess halls or field kitchens was not possible or not available, and when a survival ration (K-ration or D-ration) was insufficient. Development began in 1938 with the first rations being field-tested in 1940 and wide-scale adoption following soon after. Operational conditions often caused the C-ration to be standardized for field issue regardless of environmental suitability or weight limitations.

Here we have a very nice U.S. WWII TYPE "C" RATION, still in the original wrapper. There is a list of ingredients on the front of the box, indicating that this is one of the biscuit units, so it contains numerous rectangular biscuits inside. The label also indicates that it was made by the LOOSE-WILES BISCUIT COMPANY of NEW YORK. As is correct for WWII manufacture, there is no zip code in the address.

A great bit of Vietnam militaria, very hard to find and ready to display!

Idiot Clause - the contents of this kit are WWII era manufacture and are NOT suitable for consumption. They are being sold as novelty collector pieces only. Even though some people on youtube have tried. Yuk!
