Medical Supplies - Items used to fill the kits

I believe they were carried by Corpsmen and Medics in the Model 1910 and Model 1917 Medical Corpman's belt, if that helps.

 

Does anyone have more Corpsman/Medic pictures they would be greatly appreciated?

Looking at that picture I would think you are looking for the large roll, similar to the 3 ( BAY'S, ZO or SR) shown in my picture, but WW1 vintage obviously.

This one sold on Ebay last week for $22 minus contents and not in mint condition.

Did the one you were offered have the contents?

If the price is not too extreme you should pick it up. Most of the components are specific to the kit, very scarce to find individually, and the artic kit is much more rare than the jungle. I am not too sure on issue to ground troops but it is an issued item to large bomber aicraft for the AAC.

Aloha Everyone,

 

This is the type of topic which spurs me to get off my lazy rump and dig out my old gear. I was going to post this on my collection topic or as a part of my M-56/67 web gear topic, but now that I shot the photos.....

 

Late VN war Nylon Medical Instrument and Supply Set case No. 8, my own USN kit from the USS GRASP (ARS-24) used on landing parties, etc. This is the individual kit that has been hanging on my M-1956 web gear & hasn't been messed with for over 30 years.

 

I know the topic initiator asked us not to show the cases, web gear, etc. but I'll just pick it apart and see what's in it.

Here's the plastic insert case

 

These are kinda sticky after all these years, (3) commercial Vaseline packs. Sailor's who worked on small boats in the tropics for long periods of time will know what these are for.......yep, crotch rot.

 

PS - we did "go commando" too, as our skivvies would contribute to the rash & chaffing.

 

I also carried an ace bandage type wrap for sprains & an extra rolled bandage.
