fallout Posted May 6, 2022 Share #1 Posted May 6, 2022 Something I've been trying to figure out is what contents would be correct for the Jungle First Aid Kit in the 50s. Not exclusively Korea, just 50s as a whole, Lebanon 58 ect. There are plenty of lists and references for WW2 and Vietnam but I haven't been able to find out about the time in-between. I have a few assumptions but would like a confirmation if possible. -The Packet, First Aid, Field Brown Dressing, Carlisle Model was likely replaced with the Dressing, First Aid, Individual Troop, Camouflaged, Small (MIL-D-15141 - 1 Mar 1950 - MIL-D-15141A - 31 Jan 1953 - MIL-D-15141B - 10 Nov 1958 - Stock No. 2-017-455, later FSN 6510-201-7455) -Frasier's Solution was replaced with Boric Acid Ointment -The Iodine Applicator was likely replaced with a box of 6 Iodine Swabs -Sulfadiazine Tablets and Atabrine Tablets fell out of use after WW2 from what I understand So assuming the above is correct my questions are: -The glass bottle of Insect Repellent was used until replaced by the Deet in the familiar plastic bottles circa 1960/61, correct? -When were the square bottles of 100 Halazone Tablets replaced with the round bottles of 50 Iodine Tablets? The kits (renamed First Aid Kit, Individual (FSN 6545-823-8165) sometime in the early 60s) issued in the mid 60s all have a contents sheet which is really helpful. However I've not seen a contents list post 1945, pre 1965, that's a 20 year gap. Korea 50-53, Lebanon 1958 and Thailand 1962 show that the kits were issued and used during this time. Thanks for any help you can provide! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
