Hi Guys,

 

I found this emergency surgical instrument kit for minor surgery. It's marked: "Yale Belt Corp". I have a doubt: It could be a ww2 surgery kit?

I saw few like this that people say are from WWII, but i would like be sure. During the years they didn't change a lot I thought...

 

Online, I found this site about medic equpiment during the war: http://www.mtaofnj.org/content/WWII%20Combat%20Medic%20-%20Dave%20Steinert/EquipmentOfWWIICombatMedic.htm

And there also is a kit like mine. We found this kit in Italy, near Gotic Line.

 

What do you think guys? :)

Thank you!

 

Federico

It doesn't look like the WW2 type to me.

 

That resembles the post war item.

 

Some of the tools/ instruments are incorrect too

Post-war for sure. The instruments are definitely post-war and the case does not look WW2 vintage with the markings. Hope this helps, sorry to disappoint.

Thank for your reply guys. I thought it was WWII because few people told me and also because I saw that web site.

In that site I saw this kit. Maybe is wrong? Just for asking.

 

Thank you so much :)

Those kits are pretty difficult to find with the full contents and in decent shape regardless of the era. The WWII era cases tend to be more of a brownish khaki or a lighter shade of OD green.

 

The contents themselves have only ever changed slightly.

I have one almost identical to the one shown, and mine is Vietnam era based on the dates of the contents inside. Very nice kit!

I just sold one of these that was navy marked circa 1960's. I think this one is same era.
