Yeah much better than the ones they sell in field and trek - £5 for a single meal - madness!

Noticed this today as well, it was only last week I'd bought 10 off them for £4.50 a pop!!

The other thing was they sent me 10 of the same menu....grrrr.

did you ask them for a mix?? when i ordered a box of 10 they did me a mix of 4, 3 and 3 from the 3 menus they had in stock..though the chap on the phone said they usually only do full boxes, or 5 and 5.. ;)
though even at £4.50 each it seems a good price compared to other sellers

I didn't specifically ask for a mix, I ordered off the net and kinda assumed they would think people wouldn't want 10 of the same menu. Silly me, they just pulled a Big box of D menus off the shelf and sent it to me. To be fair though, I quite like the menu I got and I'm usually never out for more than 2 nights.

It is a bloody good price. I would order more but I don't have anywhere to put them.

Are they in tins or current issue? Current issue being boil in the bag.
I believe the tinned ones are getting past their best now as they are so old with the exception of 10 man packs which come in tins ( i think ) .
If so i might get a few .

Just noticed that www.genuinearmysurplus.co.uk is doing british army ration packs for only £3.50, makes a hell of a change from the usual tenner. Always handy to have a few stashed away.

As always, I have no connection etc, just a happy customer :)
Hello SW,

Thanks for the 'heads-up', just ordered some more, hoping that they won't be Menu G (don't like chocky pudding).

Best regards,
Paul.

just spoken to genuine army surplus.

They do not do "mix" boxes but they can do 2x5 per box. Bit of a luck dip which.

I'm going to Darlo after New Year and are going to get a couple of packs - so if there is enough interest I'd be happy to 1 or 2 boxes (2 would = 4 menus). Sadly no veggie ones.

Due to the cost of delivery on a £3.50 item it is not really cost effective to post them around the country - but I'm happy to deliver in the West(ish) Yorkshire area in return for a cup of tea.

They usually have a packing date, not a use before date.

I wouldn't be worried if it's 4 years old.

The date on the side of the box is the packing date of the box.
The date on the boil in the bags is the the date Wayfarers (spelling?) processed and packed the meals into the bags.

The rations packs have a five year shelf life from the packing date on the box until they need to got rid of.
