Which WWII Medical Kit does this gauze belong to?

Recommended Posts

This gauze was part of a group of WWII medical supplies. The company, Acme Cotton Products Co., Inc., was a medical supplier during WWII. Is it part of a medical kit? The box is marked on one side only and reads:

2 Inch - 6 Yds.
Sterilized Gauze Bandage
Camouflaged 

Acme Cotton Products. Co, Inc.
New York, N.Y.

I have not found any information on any kit that bandage goes in. Most likely intended as hospital supplies.

It's pretty much a standard 2" x 6 yds guaze bandage that you would find in any medical kit that called for 2" gauze bandage. Didn't see any listed for the Army kits but in the Navy's shipboard first aid boxes, they were listed.  A stock number and/or contract number would usually not be on the individual boxes but on the outer box/case they come int.  Here's one at 1944supply.com (navy contract):
