Thanks for the note on the black pill vial labels-now I now to keep looking. As for the dispensing kit bottles, no, I have never seen the actual bottles except in the illustration in the MD3 catalog. I do have an original box, and very close bottles and rubber stoppers. From the Med chest 2 contents...

spigots on bag

I have another question re. lister bags. The old ones have a small number of spigots, and the more recent ones have more. I have a 1947 marked USMC bag with more spigots than the bags in these pictures. Did the pattern change in the early post war period, or is this a USMC thing? Your thoughts?

I too do not wish to see a political debate here, but cannot resist the urge to offer my one time comment. In short, I completely agree with the sentiments Littlelotte and Jumpwings recently expressed. I am a patriotic American and support my country, but I see the current trend in Washington as ver...

Needles

Welcome, The hypodermic needles used in the Army in the 1940's were essentially the same as used now. Regulations for the needles in the MD chest #2 included 25,23, 19,17 and 15 gage needles. Other sizes show up as well. The big ones (10, 15 & 17) were 3" long for aspirating fluids, and the...

your box's contents

Great looking box. The packing list items are for the metal wire frames for attaching exposed X-ray films to, in order to be dipped into the developing solutions. It says dental hangers, very small, and the 14 X 17 are the standard large medical ones for chest, abdomen, films. From the numbers liste...

Surgical needle and suture packets.

Mike;
I can supply you with some nice reproductions of needle packets, both the green Excelsior brand and the purple Anchor brand as seen in the MED-3 book photos. Are you in the UK?

They were used by the pharmacist to dispense liquid medications to patents, and also as as stock bottles for liquid medications used in a clinic, surger...

These photos are absolutely great. The one of the surgeons medical kit contents alone is a gold mine of info. It shows how the tablet boxes were carried, a question I believe came up recently. Good work.
