Hi , I have a 1944 U.S.N Backpad survival kit.

 

Thank you to Dustin, for a little information. 

 

It is a bit... dirty... but I will try cleaning it a little later on.   

 

Just wanted to show everyone

The family of the M-592. There are four variants, each having their subtle differences and unique components.

One would need a total of five to complete the hat trick of the standard types. The fifth is the Model-A pararaft which requires an M-592 for its completion.

btw the last generation of M592s on your first pics looks the same?

Stenciled looks almost the same, interios straps configuration also? (of course minus pilot/crewmen inicials).

 

Cheers,

Jerry

Hello Jerry, what you are looking at are first and second generations from two different manufacturers. the top two (same mfg.) have significant differences while the bottom two are much more subtle, but different. Some component changes and if you look close, the components are in a slightly different configuration. the drinking water kit was not a factory installation, i just have that in there for fun, but as a service directive to do so.

I'm not too sure what you mean by first one, but the one on the far right is the same as the one on the left but the exterior stencil is in a different type font, rather thinner outline. The kit with the small USN is actually the hardest one to source, in my observation.
