If you were lucky you would get k ration. They were an important source of food for WWII soldiers. A K ration was also a pocket ration for paratroopers .... but large, pockets… that were designed to be able to hold a k ration box. A C ration is an already canned food sent in to the soldiers. If you got or had none of those you had to eat a German soldier. To finish off you would not get to much food to eat during World War 2.
