Peter Barrett scanned this picture at the reunion of a fresh box of C rations. I can make out most of them, but some not. Where's the beans and weiners?

I would guess what we are seeing top left to bottom left of first row.

Ham and Eggs
Beef and Spiced Sauce
Meatballs with Beans in Tomato Sauce
Beef Slices and Potatoes
Turkey Loaf
Beef Steak

The second row top right to bottom right.

Pork Steak
Chicken Boned
Ham and Lima Beans
Beans and Franks???
Ham Fried?
Chicken and Noodles.

I think there was a slightly different assortment of C's too. I think this assortment was the older version. Sometimes you didn't get the Beef Slices and Potatoes for instance.... am I remembering this right? Sometimes the meatballs came with noodles, seems like.
