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Was this type of F.A. Packet distributed till it was superseded by M-1924 one?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?
