Description
Rectangular metal box with lid that is sealed with red cellotape. On the lid in black it says: "Emergency Ration MkII, A M, Ref. No. 27P/7, read instructions carefully". On the bottom, also in black, is a list of contents (barley sugar, chewing gum, malted milk tablets, energy tablets). The case is heavy so they are probably still inside. Also written on the back are patent numbers and opening instructions. 2 old accession numbers have been written on yellow and white stickers.
