A few medical items

Thu Dec 21, 2006 22:09

Sodium Bicarbonate 1 lb #1415000 - nice unopened can - no rust - no date

Petrolatum 1 lb #1334000 nice unopened can (Vaseline brand) no rust - no date

Medical Corps Feather Pillow - 1950's dated, but identical to WW2 - still in sealed plastic bag (I have one on my bed - sleeps better than the newer pillows)

These are nice for aid station & field hospital displays - will trade for WW2 GI stethoscope, or will consider other items I don't have yet (there is LOTS I don't have yet!)

will consider giving up field autoclave (no heating unit) http://i119.photobucket.com/albums/o150 ... CN0062.jpg
http://i119.photobucket.com/albums/o150 ... CN0068.jpg , field suction unit (complete - unissued) http://i119.photobucket.com/albums/o150 ... CT0412.jpg
http://i119.photobucket.com/albums/o150 ... CT0413.jpg

for something unusual, like a cocoa unit or a type 1 tray set (with chest).

Dave,

Is there any chance that you could perhaps post up some illustrations or images of the items that you have? I would be most interested in seeing the images?

Many thanks in anticipation,
Ben

Let me borrow a digital camera & I'll post some shots for all to see. I may post a few "what's this" shots as well, as I have a few items I cannot identify, and the medical professionals haven't been much help.

Ok, that would be great, and I would be more than willing to try and identify the various items.

Many thanks in anticipation,
Ben

For what it is worth, I purchased a thermometer from a post-war dated lot that has an identical holder to the one above. The thermometer is different, but the "plastic" two-piece shell is the same. I was told that the piece I purchased was identical to those used in WWII. I know it isn't much help, but might be a small piece to the puzzle.

Hi there,

The thermometers, as Firetoad says are post-War issue, or at least the black plastic container is. Wartime versions can be seen in the illustration of Medical Personnel Kits in the Medical Kits section of the site.

I will have a look through my Medical Supply Catalog and see whether I can help identify the other two instruments.

Hope that helps,
Ben

I updated a few photos on the original posting - see if you can ID the autoclave. It had a mint TM8-615 in the carton dated May 1945 - but again, NOT DATE on the item
