POUCH – MEDIC WWI, 1918 DATED, WITH CONTENTS: FIRST ONE OF THESE WE HAVE SEEN WITH CONTENTS. THIS IS THE RIGHT SIDE MEDIC POUCH (MARKED “R” ON THE BACK) WITH ALL CONTENTS LISTED ON THE INNER LABEL EXCEPT THE “5 STUCK SCHNELLVERBAND IN PAPIERBEUTEL” THAT WENT INTO THE LONG COMPARTMENT BETWEEN THE FRONT AND REAR HOLDERS THE LENGTH OF THE BOX. THE GAUZE PACKET IS ITALIAN – SO THEY MUST HAVE BEEN ON THE ITALIAN FRONT AT THE TIME IT WAS TAKEN. ALUMINUM TUBES ARE EMPTY (ONE WAS OPIUM), SMALL BOX HAS THREE VIALS WRAPPED IN OLD PAPER BUT I DID NOT WANT TO DISTURB THEM, BOX HAS TWO VIALS (BOTTOM OF CARDBOARD BOX IS LOOSE BUT THERE), DID NOT WANT TO DISTURB THEM EITHER BUT THEY APPEAR UNUSED. OVERALL IT IS EXC. A VERY RARE MEDIC ITEM.
