Hi Dave

 

If it helps here is a list of contents for the ARCTIC FIRST-AID KIT as listed in FM 21-11 FIRST AID FOR SOLDIERS April 7, 1943

The snake bite kit for the JUNGLE FIRST-AID KIT is made by SAUNDERS and I have posted pictures of mine in the Ref section under "Snake bite kits".

 

From your picture it looks like you have a contents list on the inside of the lid, does it list a snake bite kit and malaria tablets?

 

Cheers

Dave,

The insect repellent and snake bite kit may indeed be for the arctic kit. In the summer time the arctic is filled with blood sucking mosquitoes, flies and gnats. One of the requirements for pilot's survival kits in Alaska is insect repellent with 100% DEET.

The snake bite kit may be for the infamous rare and deadly "snow snake".

edit: My mistake... the "snow snake" does not kill with its bite.

Bilko / Dave, don't worry about the ' snow snake' mentioned above just keep a watch out for those ' one-eyed trouser snakes', they can be deadly. hee hee.

 

Good to see you at the show, and that you were pleased with the grey socks you got from me. Impressed with your medical case and contents I saw it at your stand but didn't guess that it would be so full of the kit.

Just a quick impression... I'm very happy with this grouping! He was a airplane mechanic and he served in the PTO and the Philipines.

Great grouping, Peter.

As I told you, USAAF is not my field of interest, but I sure can appreciate a grouping like this.

 

Thanks for sharing.

Yes, your last cap is a WWII cap. It's nice you have both variations.

 

The Korean War MQ-1 and M1951 caps do not have the pile on the front bill.
