Item Description

Original Items: Only One Available. This is a Genuine unissued example that dates from late WW2. This kit definitely saw service in the war, and has had the contents replenished as needed. The original contents list that usually is in the lid looks to have fallen out long ago. Also, the bottle of insect repellent leaked slowly inside this case for decades which left some deposits on the lid and bottom of the case.

This kit contains the following items, most of which are still in their original cardboard packaging:

  • One bottle of INSECT REPELLENT
  • TWO packages of 6 iodine swabs
  • One Large U.S. ARMY CARLISLE MODEL First Aid Dressing
  • One Burn-Injury Set with two tubes of Boric Acid Ointment
  • One Camouflaged 4 inch Bandage Compress
  • One Small U.S. ARMY CARLISLE MODEL First Aid Dressing
  • One Ounce of Foot Powder

In very nice condition, with a great worn look.

During World War II (1942-1945) Mine Safety Appliances Co. of Pittsburgh, PA (and others) manufactured the twelve unit Motor Vehicle First Aid Kit, originally under five digit Medical Department stock number 97773. It was a metal olive drab box with cover marking as in the photo above. They were equipped with wire clasps, hinges and handle. Later production bore stock numbers 9777300, then converted to 9-221-200. The later stock numbers were painted on the cover in white, such as: "Stock No." + red cross in white circle + "9-221-200".

According to FM 21-11 First Aid For Soldiers dated 7 April 1943 this kit was supplied to motor vehicles on a ratio of one kit for four vehicles, including jeeps. It was mounted in a bracket, under the dash (between gauge panel and the glove box) or other suitable place in the vehicle cab. It was not mounted at the factory, rather by the Army after delivery.

Idiot Clause - the contents of this kit are pre-1945 manufacture and are NOT suitable for use. They are being sold as novelty collector pieces only.
