Saw this "first aid pocket kit" in a SpanAm War museum display, but it looks more WWI-ish (or just pre-) to me. It measures about 3x5 inches (first aid dressing sized) or so. Very similar to a WWI era soap dish I have, actually.

 

Whaddya think?

Is there an inventory under the lid or any contents?  I am thinking 1930's to 1950's time frame and is probably not military.  The forest service and other agencies that had people out in the field used these.  Also possibly the WPA in the 1930's.  I have seen a video of WW2 era USFS smoke jumpers that showed a similar kit.
