R.A.F. Escape / Ration Box

Code: SOLD-1230

SOLD
Acetate box approx. 14 x 12 x 2.5cms. The box is the earlier non-curved pattern. It contains the following visible escape/evasion and ration items : a rubber water bag with drawstring top; 20 x Horlicks tablets; chewing gum.; 2 small rolls of sticking plaster; a box of safety matches; 2 bars of chocolate, tube of suncream or condensed milk and standard 0.5" escape compass; paper packet of Halazone water purification tablets; anti-fatigue tablets and paper slip dated 6/43. The box is complete, has never been opened/unpacked and retains the inner box and outer sleeve with remnants of the tape seal. There is some discolouration of the acetate and relatively minor distortion/warping of the outer sleeves as can be seen in the photographs. As is usually the case the box emits a relatively mild smell. The contents appear, on the whole, to be in good condition although there is evidently some leakage/staining from the cream tube and 'sweating' from the Horlicks tablets. These kits were issued individually but also as a componant part of some survival kits. They are extraordinarily rare to find these days, particularly with all of the contents remaining. Don't miss this one. Stock code EDRF/1
