"Patten Food Products" Type IIIa kit

What you see is what you get!

The Patten Food Products kit is of the K Ration type IIIa kind. This type was produced from May/June 1943 until Februari 1944, but was still in stock and issued until the end of the war. This composition is representive for an early production with the Assorted Charms candy in the Dinner unit.
The Old Gold cigaret cartons will be replaced with Chesterfield's as soon I have finished those.

In one of the units the Spearmint chewing gum can be substituted with a Cinnamon flavor chewing gum.
No cellophane sheets are included for overwrapping the fruit bar or cigarettes. No toilet tissue is included.

None of the kits will contain any foodstuffs, cigarettes or matches.

The outer cartons are of the "tuck-in flaps" type. Although they can be carefully opened and reclosed, the flaps are of the locking type and opening will probably damage them. These boxes are designed for using them only once.
The inner cartons are uncoated and should be coated with wax once they are filled and sealed.

The outer and inner boxes and the components are shipped flat together.

This is how you will receive the unassembled components. Read the complete "Reproduction" chapter for tips how to fill these wrappers and packagings.
You will need glue for the wrappers and boxes, and a hair straightner for sealing the pouches. The matches only need a staple.
