My girlfriend got this for me at a local flea market and sent me these pictures. Does anyone know what type of aircraft this would have been used in? Are they a commonly found piece? The contents of this one are pictured, however what should be inside something like this?

Nice find! I've seen that particular type on a number of WWII aircraft.

 

Thank you friend. This was another one of my girlfriend's pickups at a local flea market. I swear when I return from Iraq, I'm going to just continue to let her do the shopping. She always seems to make out better than I do.

Yep nice find indeed! The plane itself would have the lift-the-dot type snaps, the male ends connected to the interior wall of the aircraft and this would be snapped into place. If there was an emergency on the plane it could easily be ripped off the wall and taken to wherever needed.

I think the girlfriend was the better find!

I see these kits every once in a while, not as common as a typical carlisle but not insanely rare either. They usually go for 65-120 depending on condition IIRC.

The empty bag is fairly easy to find but to get one with the original contents is super.

Finally had a chance to take some pics. First is cover page of the reference manual and second is the FA Kit with contents. These were sealed kits.

Thanks guys, I appreciate the kind words. She hasn't always been this way though. I think shes just doing this because I'm in Iraq. I remember many a morning when she insisted on coming with me to the flea market, yet moved like a slug and kept on falling back asleep. Nothing like dragging a beautiful little anchor around the flea market with you when you're trying to get everywhere first. LOL.
