WWII Unit 24 Medical First Aid Kit for Tank or Jeep
WWII Unit 24 Medical First Aid Kit for Tank, Scout Car, Half Track, Jeep or other vehicles. The instruction label has Elizabeth Arden printed at the bottom, they are a famous cosmetic company. Looks like they made medical gear for the war effort during WW2. As shown in the picture, the box is empty, but the latches, and the rubber waterproof seal are in excellent condition. The paint and lettering is in very good condition. Displays well. I have not attempted to clean it up in any way. Shipping is $15.00 to USA, or $30.00 out of the USA.
