First aid Kit, Parachutist

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know how to identify an original or fake WW2 First aid Kit, Parachutist?

 

For example: Is this one original?

Quick test: authentic will make a rattling sound, when shaken, caused by the morphine syrett in it's cardboard box.

Morphine set has been removed :cry:

 

But I think it's an original, stitching looks good, First Aid marking looks also good. Think I'll take the shot! Thanks for the help :)

Bob,

 

This looks to me like one made by a certain collector/re-enactor in the Netherlands (and sold by him as reproductions, I hasten to add). I've got the exact same one that I use for re-enacting.

 

Cheers,

Glen.
