USAAF Aircrew Lunch Box

Code: S20263

SOLD

Stock No. 8300-680475.  Manufactured by The Charms Company of Bloomfield, New Jersey.  Small card box within an outer sleeve (9.5 x 8 x 2.5cm) designed to be easily opened with a gloved hand.  Sliding the box in either direction the airman could take fudge bars and chewing gum or candy.  Introduced in 1944 to supply a basic ration and combat fatique on missions over  3 hours.  The box is a little worn around the edges but essentially sound and in good order.  Empty.  The first example we've had for ages as few will have survived.  Stock code S20263.
