As mentioned in my introductory message here is the first of my question about items that causes me, if not headaches, some questioning.
Item 1203990 does not exists in my “medical supply catalog” (March, 1st, 1944) but is mentioned in “Med-Dept” as “Foot Powder, 1 oz, with 5 Package, 1/5-oz”.
I look at my items and find one that matches with the item in “Med-Dept” database, box of 5 x 1/5-oz small bags totaling 1 oz… great!
And here comes my second item 1203990, that one is a single bag of 1 oz foot powder.
Is my second item a change in packaging during war?
Did my first item exist prior or after March, 1st, 1944 when my catalog was issued?
Did my second item exist prior or after March, 1st, 1944 when my catalog was issued?
On which catalog your reference “Foot Powder, 1 oz, with 5 Package, 1/5-oz” was mentioned?
Many thanks in advance for your answers or remarks.
