Original box for comparison / reference :
One type of ration that was issued to U.S. Service Members in the field during WW2 was the 10 in 1 Ration. This ration was broken up between four smaller boxes with the intention of feeding 10 Service Members for one day. Each box was marked HALF OF 5 RATIONS and contained half of the rations to be combined to feed 5 Service Members. Four half ration boxes would be contained in one master box for shipping.When issued, both halves would match the Menu for the specified meal.
The 10-in-1 was introduced in mid-1943 and over 300 million rations were produced by the end of the war.
⚠️ We have several models of boxes with different markings in stock. "Menu #" or manufacturer stamping may vary. If you want a specific "Menu #" or manufacturer marking, please contact us before ordering. You will otherwise receive a box with random markings.

I am François, founder and manager of ww2gear.
As far as I can remember, I have always been a WW2 history buff.
The ww2gear adventure started back in 2017 with the creation of the @ww2gear Instagram page. Since then, I have developed increasing interest for WW2 reenactment.
One thing led to another, and I quickly joined a U.S. Army reenactment group in Belgium : The BRO.
Simultaneously, I started creating repro gear for myself and a few friends, in line with the concrete needs of WW2 collectors and reenactors. It quickly became a serious business, which led to a full time job in 2021.
Most products available on this webshop are handcrafted by myself or artisans, which explains our limited assortment strategy.
I am a passionate person, working to enhance your passion.
