Some pictures of the late war Pacific
Composite Ration (6-MEN) Pack. This is the ration that had so much influence over ration pack development in the years following
World War 2.
Note the trend toward camouflaged tins and packaging.
The first of a long tradition of "Green Foods", which also saw the Introduction of "Cheese, Processed", which soon came to
be known as "Cheese-Possessed!" by Tommy--from Burma to Palestine.
though the idea of camouflage packaging was brilliant, there seems to have been little standartization of what shades
of drab the inner cartons/packages were.
