Here is an interesting item I got off of Ebay for next to nothing. I recognized it from the copy of QM 6 Quartermaster Supply Catalog: Chests, Kits, Outfits and Sets. It is definitely unissued as the ruler still has the wax paper on it and it is 100% complete. The markings on it are U.S. FAUROT INC. KIT, FINGERPRINT, LATENT 1943. I know it is not a combat item, but I really like the more unusual stuff the military issued during WWII.

A very nice fingerprint kit. These were used by MPs and CID agents in criminal investigations. There is also a larger hard shell kit for taking fingerprints on cards.

Rambob,

What a great item! I work at the US Army Military Police Museum. We are always looking for great MP items like this. We have been trying to locate the kit you have and a later model kit (see photo). In the catalogue you included as picture 3 above, are there any other MP specific kits or sets? Please consider the MP Museum when you come across MP items. We are always interested in obtaining original artifacts, and photos and informationa papers. If your every at Fort Leonard Wood stop by aand I'll give you a tour.
