From the kits I have I see three different style stencils. That is the method I have used to sort by.

Stencil style 1

Here's a picture of my Bullard roll type kit

http://i86.photobucket.com/albums/k120/GICOP3/bullardkit.jpg

Can anyone tell me the approximate year these were manufactured and which came first, the USMC/USN/US ARMY M1 Jungle kit or this one. http://www.usmilitar...tyle_emoticons/default/thumbsup.gif

In other words did Bullard copy the M1 Jungle kit or vice versa.

Cheers

Here is a pretty complete Jungle First Aid roll. I have assembled this from scratch from various contents lists that are around. I have also tried to match componenets to the correct pockets by the pocket size. I am always looking for input and for photos of other kits also with contents

Here is an unusual version of the jungle roll I have never seen anywhere else. It is more of a bag than a roll and the compartments are inside the bag. Comments???

That is unusual and interesting. I know when Alec Tulkoff was working on GRUNT GEAR that he examined several differet types of Jungle Rolled FA KIts but he never mentioned a bag style. All he reported on and all I have ever seen or heard about were open rolls. The size varies quite abit but it is the same concept. I wonder if this might have been a very early design or maybe some special purpose such as a survial kit.

Congratulations!! Wish it was mine.

Thanks Craig. I left off some other markings inside this item. They are DAVIS EMERGENCY EQUIPMENT CO. INC. Item #97107. So it definitely looks to be a variant of the Jungle First Aid Kit Roll type. BTW. It is a terrible design, with the pockets way too shallow to securely hold the items in place. Also when you start adding the items they interfere with each other. Lastly it is extremely dificult to see inside and remove a desired item, easily. I wouldn't be surprised if this was some kind of prototype roll and bag combination, that just didn't make the grade.

Has anyone heard of a TYPE-1 jungle first aid kit? I have one designated as a Type-1 Medical Kit. It's an OD green canvas pouch slightly taller than an M-2 kit and is marked "FUNGUS PROOFED TYPE-1 1943". I can't quite make out the manufacturer but it appears to be "something TAPPAN PROCESSING CO". An additional marking is "ROB, M15-C64274A". The "kit" has the complete contents as far as I can find. They are as follows: 1 box ammonia inhalant ampuls, 1 glass bottle of insect repellent, 1 tube boric acid ointment, 1 box of foot powder packets, 1 box muslin bandage, 1 box of iodine swabs, 1 box 2" roller gauze bandage, 1 box 1" roller gauze bandage, 1 small glass bottle halazone tablets. and a 3"x3" gauze pad. Just wondering if anyone could authenticate this information or if anyone has any additional information on this particular kit.

Thanks,

Scubajet

Hello Craig,

I just took these. If the lettering isn't sharp enough I'll try using the scanner. I compressed them in jpeg format so I could get more than one on the first up load...The "contents" picture will be in the second picture upload.

That is a cleaning rod case that has been converted to a First Aid Kit. It was done by an unknown surplus dealer. There have been a fair amount of them at shows for several years. There was another one posted here not to long ago but I'm not sure where it is so I can't link to it.

I have included some pics of the cleaning rod case to compare with.

Craig,

Thanks for the insite and the education...always willing to learn. So, if I have an actual M2 jungle first aid pouch it
would be fairly complete of I were to transfer the contents over...yes?

Again thanks,

Scubajet

Earlier in this thread there are a few JFAK with contents displayed. You can check your contents against those. The contents vary on them so I think it was a matter of what was available when filling a contract.
