The only surviving ration pack from the D-Day landings has been discovered unopened after 78 years.<br />
<br />
The 'Assault Ration Pack' was issued to British troops and designed to sustain them for 24 hours after landing in Nazi-occupied France. <br />
<br />
It was originally discovered in 2006 but mistakenly identified as an item from the 1950s.
