Seen that before Glen, it at least shows some of the "new" rations filtered through to one of the units a few months after procurement, of real interest is the fact those boys got a hold of a pancake mix (fresh eggs etc?)

Yep, that's a fact.

Thought it might help the discussion as it was missing from page 1 of this thread in Paul's original post.

Does anyone ever wonder why there's so many "moral boxes" still out there on the open market?

The QMC: Operations in the War Against Germany, concerning Overlord:

"Each individual was to carry one D and one K ration and four candle-type heat units on his person when disembarking, and each organization carried three C or K rations for its members. No unit was to draw rations until its third day ashore.

During the first three days, maintenance and build-up rations would be shipped in the proportion of 60 percent C rations and 40 percent K rations.
On D plus 4, 10-in-1 rations would begin to arrive, and on D plus 15, the first B rations, bread ingredients, and fresh coffee were scheduled. By the end of the first month, it was estimated, 50 percent of consumption would be B rations, 25 percent 10-in-1, and 25 percent C, D, and K rations.

After D plus 15 fresh bread at the rate of eight ounces per ration would be available for 40 percent of the troops, and by D plus 30, enough perishable foods
to provide a rough equivalent of the A ration for 40 percent of all personnel on the far shore.

Hospitals were to be provided with the 5-in-1 until the B ration became available."

Note the last part...
