After finding the last sulfadiazine tablets in the mailbox this morning, here's my finished project! :D
Everything is genuine, except the EM tags, and the clinical thermometer (can't find them anywhere :| )

Enjoy!
(pics of the contents of pouch will be posted this week)

Here the items from the pouch:
The f-aid pouch dated 1942 is from an LT, which added Wound tablets (5 digit) to the f-aid pouch (never seen this before!)
Also the pouch is strengthened with a wire splint, the carrying strap is theater made from a suspender.
Also a early war officers case ( also got the more known case)
Already mentioned, everything is genuine except from the medical tags, pencil lead (almost one in my possession :mrgreen: ) and the clinical thermometer)

WOW! Very,Very nice collection. I agree, the themometer is tough one to find. I see some that look like they could be authentic, but how can you tell? I am having a hard time finding the sutures and needles, but I keep looking. That's half the fun. I will be posting pictures some time later of some other items I have found and I hope you will keep doing the a same. Talk later. steevo

Hi Steevo,
Thanks! The sutures and the needles are indeed tough to find! Also the clinical thermometer;
I missed one in the past, and it had a certificate with it, but maybe Ben or Alain will know it, how to recognize the real ones :D
I'm curious about your collection ;)
PS I also got a full vitrine with only medical items, with everyday medical stuff :mrgreen:

Thanks a lot! :)
Here are some latest findings, also with a grouping find in Ciney

USMC corpsmen Bolo
Dated 1943, Village Blacksmith

Ciney find
Grouping from Jack C. Bootjer (°June 14, 1913, +1979 in L.A.)

Image

Image

Soldier rank Tec 5.
First he was a private 1st Class in the 108th General Hosptial in 1943. There's a brochure with every name of every soldier which was transferred to the 108th. Each person, who mostly were from the 86th General Hospital with his ASN is written down.

Also in the lot, some letters from 1942 with an announcement for drill exercises for the family and friends. Also one from someone from an English Field Hospital. But to bad it's unreadable due to water stains ... Also a little paper about the 108th GH. Also a map of Lourdes, the place he visited and also some receipts from the Picaddilly Hotel in England.

I've didn't find much info about his military career but much about his private life. There's a newspaper in which he's one of the main articles. It's namely about his wedding with Eve Neuendorf. He married her at the 16th of July at 1600. Very detailed article about the whole ceremony. He received 2 babies with her, one son at the 11th of Decembre namely Jeffery Charles Boontjer & 5 years later a girl on the 28th of March namely Martha Lynn Bootjer. They lived then in North Aurora in Illinios.
