Sorry, no etymologies found.
I did catch some delicious fish on a bent safety pin baited with C-rat cheese.
Inside the grass toy men in conical straw hats and black pajamas, armed with captured American ordnance and French and Japanese junk, tripped a wire strung with C-rat cans.
C-rat cans filled with pebbles—early warning devices—dangled from the wire like Christmas tree ornaments.
That would be happiness—a double-decker hole already dug to hide in for the night and a C-rat can of beanie-wienies.
The targets were tin cans or C-rat boxes, whatever the instructors could find.
