Its a first aid kit that contained a small plastic box with morphine syrettes, sea sickness pills, and other odds and ends. Issued with the PK Raft kit but not carried in the raft case. WW2 era and a little after. A bandage was in the pouch under the cover. I don't believe the case only is worth alot. You see them all the time on E Bay

I was once told that if the snaps have a "stippled" finish (like the one shown) the kit was WW II but if the snaps had a smooth finish it was a post war kit. I'm sure Owen would know if that is true or not.

Always looking for 4th Fighter Group and 490th Bomb Group items.
