Item Description

Original Items: Only One Available. This is a super rare unissued completely full Noncommissioned Officer’s Medical Kit with both pouches.The kit is full of genuine wartime equipment which varies from what was officially issued, so please review the photos to see exactly what is included.

This is a description of what was officially issued in this kit (which varies from what is included with this example). The early version (pre-1944) of this Kit also underwent a number of modifications, including some of those changes indicated earlier. Between 1944 and early 1945, the previous 6 Hard Rubber Vials were reduced to only 3 units (limiting the number of Pills & Tablets); the Hypodermic Needle Sterilizer was cancelled, and along also went the Complete Hypodermic Syringe Set; older items including 12 Folding Boxes for Tablets disappeared, together with the Medical Officer’s Instrument Case; the No. 1 Metal Container also had to go and was duly replaced by a Cardboard Box holding 6 Iodine Swabs; but new products were also introduced course of 1944, such as the Burn Injury Set, the Eye Dressing Set, followed by the new 16 Stickbands, and the Field Tourniquet; following continuous developments, innovations, and improvements in the medical field, the Medical Department replaced some cancelled items advantageously; they included two Boxes with 5 Morphine Tartrate Syrettes, and three Packets of 8 Sulfadiazine Tablets; Bandage Scissors were further added in fall of 1944; and course of 1945, all White fabric elements were to be replaced by Field Brown (Adhesive Surgical Plaster, Stickbands, Compressed Gauze Bandage, Compressed Triangular Bandage); followed by another series of modifications covering replacement of the current Eye Dressing Set by the M-2 version, and the Field Tourniquet by an Elastic version; finally, the single 6-unit Iodine Swab Box was increased to two…

Combat medical equipment is among the most desirable of all WWII U.S. army groupings due to their owner's selfless heroic service and scarcity due to the high number of casualties. The fact that this kit is in complete condition is truly amazing!

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.
