M-2 jungle First aid Kit - Vietnam War

Individual First Aid Kit

First Aid Kit, Empty
FSN : 6545-912-0625

The M-2 Individual Medical Jungle Kit was only manufactured in olive-drab canvas; it was supplied to each soldier fighting in jungle areas

In late 1944, production was changed to make the dimensions a little larger. At that time the nomenclature changed to Container, For Kit, Jungle, Medical, Individual, M-2. The M-2 jungle first aid kit continued in use (primarily by the Marine Corps) through Korea and the early Vietnam War. It was superseded in the mid-1960s by Case, First Aid Kit, Empty (FSN 6545-912-0625), the basis of the Individual First Aid Kit.
