    Hi guys,

    I found these today. The smaller pack is from the mess tin ration. Seems the original owner was trying to put together a 3rd div grouping. Cigarettes are a few brands: Players, Sweet Caps, and MacDonalds. First time I have seen unit crests on wartime cigarettes.

    All the best,

    Ypres,
