hbtcoveralls Posted March 3, 2011 Share #1 Posted March 3, 2011 HI Guys, The Army's standard first aid kit carried in vehicles and in other locations during WWII was the 12 unit kit. Later the 24 unit kit was developed and issued. I discovered this kit years ago and was going to use it on my WWII Jeep, but it was too nice and original for that. Through the years, the tubes containing the "petrolatum" or petroleum Jelly leaked and darkened the contents, which is how I found it. I also removed the iodine swabs to avoid their leaking as well. But as you can see this is a very original kit. one of the petrolatum tubes showing how they shrunk and leaked Thanks, comments appreciated Tom Bowers Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
