SOLD

Lunch, Air Crew.  Stock No. 8300-680475.  Packed by Charms Company, Bloomfield, New Jersey.  Approximately  9.5 x 7.5 x 2.5 cm.  Pocket-sized card box with twin compartments containing two pieces of chewing gum, two bars of fudge and 2 oz of hard candy.  These high calorie rations were issued individually to aircrews on missions of more than three hours duration.  The carton has light staining/marking but is in excellent overall condition and is complete with the original contents.  Contents show age-related deterioration.  The fudge and gum are good but some of the candy has gone a bit 'tacky'.  We have wrapped the contents in clingfilm to prevent damage to the box.  Now extremely difficult to find.  Stock code S27576.
