WWII Hygiene Kits and Personal Gear


Recommended Posts

One of my favorite sub categories of WWII is hygiene items. Here are a few groupings of items from my collection.

 

Notes of interest are: The toothbrush in the last picture has a bone handle. Fingernail clipper is marked "Gem Jr.". The fingernail file is blued and from a bunch I bought in Alaska. They came from the original WWII dated, quartermaster marked package. They wouldn't sell me the package unless I bought 50 more files at $2.00 apiece.
