Is my M24 dated 1942 short or long flap? Here is a picture complete with its packet. I cannot say the manufacturer because my stuff is stored a half mile from home.

For some reason I started collecting First Aid Pouches a few years ago. I don't know exactly why, maybe I thought it would be a cheaper aspect of the hobby. :lol: Anyway, I thought I would share the list of pouches in my collection. I would be interested if anybody would share any manufactures/dates not on the list. This maybe a good reference for the subforum if a mod wants to place it there. :thumbsup:

Craig have you seen this maker of M1910 before? It's light green and inside the snaps reads CARR'S PAT 13.

Maker is the well known L.C. Chase Watertown Mass. They did a lot of stuff during WWI, mainly belts and small pouches.

Since the first known carlisle packet is dated 1922, it's logical to think that the M1924 pouch was its natural companion, but until now I saw only WWII era pouches. It's possible that this model wasn't produced immediately considering the huge amount of surplus M1910 pouches available.

This is my first "operational" post so I beg your pardon in advance if I do mistakes :-)
Here a close up view of my M-1917 first aid packet.
A question: is M-1917 an "official" denomination? I heard of two patterns that are mainly identifiable by the shape of the pull ring. Am I right?
Was this type of F.A. Packet distributed till it was superseded by M-1924 one?
I'm eager to learn.....

Good item,very nice. Though while I cant offer any information on dates of metal first aid bandages cases, I courteously point out that for "official denomination" the correct U.S. Military term will be 'OFFICIAL DESIGNATION".

Thanks Patches! I make a note of that. Learning keeps people young ;-)

If this wouldn't  be a non-sense, it could be something made out a diagnostic tag carrier just to fool collectors.

I see, but I thinked only in recovering web then cut and sew it again in shape and dimensions ot first aid pouch. But of course it's a non sense. Actually it's very strange Mills in 1917 could have produced such an oddity.

Bonjour.

 

 

I feel the same Arturo. There are currently no quilting to prevent fraying as on other documents submitted.
Strange as cover. What is the source?
