Description

This is a fine WWII U.S. Army medic’s first aid field syringe kit that remains in very good field used condition. The outer case is constructed of aluminum and deeply marked, “MED. DEPT. U.S.A.”  on the flip open top part. The kit resembles an over-sized cigarette lighter and opens and closes the same way. Contained on the sectioned interior is the actual chrome plated syringe with removable needle and four glass vials that once contained morphine tablets that were to be dissolved in sterile water and injected into the wounded soldier to relieve pain. The vials are unbroken and with the labels still intact. One vial still has the original cork at the top. The kit measures 3½ x 1⅞ x ¾ inch thick and is without damage, only exhibiting signs of actual field use. The kits were carried in the medic’s pouches along with bandages and other medical supplies and provide relief to the severely wounded. This one most certainly provided that relief to many a wounded soldier giving comfort on the way back to the aid station and ultimately saving life.
