K Ration kits

None of the kits contain any foodstuffs, cigarettes or matches.

General Food kit flat

Just to be clear, these are DIY kits. You will receive all the cartons, wrappers and packagings to reproduce a complete K Ration. The biscuits, can, sugar, candy, matches, cigarettes, toiletpaper, beverage powders, etc. are not included and you need to buy that yourself. Where? Try your local supermarket.

Left: An example of what you will receive. Below: What a complete ration should look like.

The inner cartons are uncoated and should be coated with wax once they are filled and sealed.
The outer and inner boxes and the components are shipped flat together.
