Well this is my first venture into the medical aspect of my hobby , i realise there must be a thread already on here regarding these kits but i have got myself all confused with them !!

I have read some reference material regarding these ,and all seem to differ somewhat ,with the contents etc

so i will endeavour to post some images of mine ,and hope i can get some definate answers as to what else i need / replace to make it as correct as possible

Thank you all for taking the time to read this and for any help that ensues

Carl,

You can read more about the Medical Department Item Numbering System in the following Article on our web page:
http://www.med-dept.com/articles/backgr ... m-numbers/

5- or 7-digit item numbers are correct, but some of the components may be of civilian issue / contract. Of course, kits were re-stocked as required, so it is possible to find a mix of the two Item Number variants.

Regards,
Ben.
