There are several threads on airborne first aid packets. The link below is to a thread that began way back in 2007. It may answer some questions for you.

Allan,

 

Thank you. It would be nice to explain why something is a reproduction. Mainly so we can all learn.

I bought one of these several years ago and ripped it open. It had a block of wood in it. Glad I didn't pay much for it. Pony.

The material of the packet and the straps are different from originals,  and the shape of it when filled is not correct.
