When the tactical situation prohibited the bringing up of hot food for 24 hours or more (which occurred frequently), commanders could authorize soldiers to consume their iron or half-iron rations (halb-eiserne Portionen).
The iron or half-iron ration, consisted of canned meat and packaged crackers.
This ration was carried in the bag on the Landser’s assault pack (Beutel zum Gefechtsgepäck) and was normally placed inside the Zwiebackbeutel.
The halb-eiserne Portion carried by Landser in their Gefechstgepäck consisted of the canned meat and crackers only.
