    Yep, it is that time of year again. As we are now approaching Moot time I asked about the usual ration packs and was told there are some available at a shockingly good price. They are, wait for it, only £70 delivered if we grab a load! We paid £92 before!

    Part of that is that I've managed to arrange a better rate on a courier but yikes what a great deal as we enter the new season. Grab'em while you can at this price, use them in the woods, get them for or split with your mates, give them as presents or barter, stock up for the year....

    All well in date, into 2019.

    10 different menus in box, usual thing, Box A 1-10 or Box B 11-20. Menus get varied periodically but they are very very good as you probably already know.

    BACS preferred or maybe Paypal if BACS a major issue.


    Quick turn around if we commit and yes I can transport some to the Moot.

    Midnitehound, when you say 'Box A' 1 to 10. Is this the GP ration (ORP) ie: GP 1 Gp 2 etc: not the Veggie S1-S10 or Halal H1-H10 boxes?
    Thanks, Wicca.

    I'm referring to standard ration packs, not full Veggie or Halal. That said, meals 1 and 11 in the standard boxes seem to always be Veggie and I believe I have spotted one Halal case of 10. If someone wants the Halal then shout now. ;)

    If someone wants all Veggie then I could pull out all the no. 1 and 11 menus I guess and ship those. If someone is Veggie but eats Tuna I could re-jig a couple of the other choices. I may also be able to re-jig using a Veggie breakfast.

    Update: I could make menu 6 (From Box A) Veggie by swapping out the Indonesian Style Spicy Rice with Pork with either the Vegetable Korma from 9 or the Moroccan Bean Stew from 10 or the Pasta and Bean Salad from 2. The Menu 6 already has the Vegetarian All Day Breakfast.

    Don't know about Box B yet.

    Now if you could get 8 of box b in to box a, keep 3 of box a, and swap 4 of b, add an extra kosher pudding but remove a breakfast while making sure all the coffees are decafe and none of the drinks are tropical .... sorry sorry really sorry

    No special orders! No halal though please.
    A £70 order please, I assume that's 10 boxes/ration packs?
    Box A for a first timer :)

    Hiya, Could I get the veggie option you mentioned? I'm cool with tuna too, and not strict vegetarian so gelatine and fat is fine.
    And just 1 £70 order for that, unless I find some more money soon.
    Thanks very much.
    The mixes you arrange are always awesome.

    In response to a request here is the example contents of one ration pack, menu 15:

    rat 15.jpg

    For £70 incl. P&P you get 10 of these as all different menus, either menus 1-10 or 11-20.

    Hope that is helpful. ;)

    Also here is an online link to a past example of menus:

    http://www.goarmy.co.uk/media/10-20ratpack.pdf

    They do vary the menus every 6 months or so.
