Thread: 24 hr ration pack

  1. #1

    24 hr ration pack

    I've been given one of the above. It is sealed up and it says something on the side about not opening it until I'm going to use it.

    I've never seen one before. What is likely to be inside. Also, will there be a little burner with it ?

    Cheers,

    Bob

    No there wont be a Hexi Burner inside it. You will need to find a way of heating it up. You can open the cardboard box, everything inside will be sealed. Hopefully you will have "Boil in the bag", that's all that has been in service for a good few years now. Also on each foil bag it will tell you what's onside. There are various menus available, A, B, C, D, etc......

    You can also eat them cold if required.

    Enjoy

    Position and hold must be firm enough to support the firearm
    The firearm must point naturally at the target without any undue physical effort
    Sight alignment (aiming) must be correct
    The shot must be released and followed through without disturbing the position

    Thank you TJ.

    It has a purple sticker on the side with the number 3 on it.

    I'm looking forward to seeing what's in it.

    Cheers,

    Bob

    +1 on that. Unless you are half frozen, in the middle of nowhere, it's pissing it down with rain and your only choice of food is the rat pack or a dead scabby horse sandwiched between two piss stained mattresses - it may then just pass as food.

    I preferred the tinned grub when they still issued them.
