Mk II First Aid Pack for Air Crews

These packs were exclusively issued for aircrew use in WWII and were designed to be carried in their service dress or battledress uniform or in a pocket in the Sidcot flying suit. The pack is made from waterproof rubberised canvas and as well as containing standard field dressing items it also contains a specialist medical kit primarily intended for treating burns. A full list of the contents is printed on both sides of the pack as well as basic opening and usage instructions. The pack is also stamped with a red cross, an AM and a Kings Crown. This is a scarce early Mk II set and unusually it has never been opened, so will contain its full contents as issued. The pack is in good display condition but one side has very slight staining and the reverse (not shown in our photograph) is partially faded perhaps due to exposure to the sun. These are getting increasingly hard to find in any condition and would make a good addition to an RAF collection. Clearly for sale as a display item only and contents definitely no longer for us! Measures 6.25" x6.25" (16 cm x 16 cm)
