Item Description

Original Item: Only One Available. This is a very nice and hard to find U.S. WWI Field Medic Pouch, as issued by the Hospital Corps. It is a nice khaki canvas pouch, with leather trim, and leather front closure strap. It is marked with a medic "Red Cross", and the fromt is marked with the Caduceus next to A.C. 1 over 38. This most likely indicates the unit that the field medic was deployed to. 

The underside of the top flap is marked HOSPITAL CORPS POUCH., and gives a full list of the contents that should be in the pouch. It also indicates it was made by The Manhattan Supply Co., New York, N. Y. in May 1903. This pouch was doubtless still in service when WWI broke out.

The pouch measures about 11 1/2"W x 8 1/2"H x 2 3/4", with a nice woven wool shoulder strap, which ends in two belt loops. The interior has several leather pockets, though they have degraded over the years, as have some of the leather borders. This pouch was at one point repaired with fresh leather, so some parts are definitely newer than others.

In great shape and ready to display!
