By Bovril Ltd. Gilt metal tin approximately 11 x 8 x 2.5cm containing a large block of chocolate. The packaging date on the label is 6/42. Text on the lid reads 'Emergency Ration - Purpose of Contents - To be consumed only when no other rations of any kind are procurable. To Open - Strip off band. Insert coin in corner groove and turn. Notice - not to be opened except on order of an officer'. The tin has surface wear and corrosion plus minor dents.
