Original U.S WWII Jeep Emergency First Aid Kit (12 Unit) - Complete Unissued

Item Description

Original Items: Only One Available. Genuine unissued example that dates from Late WW2 or early Korean War. Regardless, it is a very difficult and hard to find item. See photos for detailed contents. The kit measures 9 1/2" x 5 1/2" x 2 3/4".

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 the 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-1955 manufacture and are NOT suitable for use. They are being sold as novelty collector pieces only.
