    WWII? Medic Pouch

    Post by Ben5201 on Wed Jan 01, 2014 12:05 pm

    I got this medic pouch a few days ago, after searching I cannot find another one like it.

    I was only told it was Canadian issued, from WWII. The wooden casing has a removable compartment.

    It came with a bunch of gauze bandages, most of which are not original.

    If someone can help me identify it, the stamp reads 177518

    Thanks

    I am no expert on these but I do have a lot of WWII webbing and a few medics bags. I have not seen this style before refferenced in a book yet.

    My feeling is this was done post WWII for some reason. Again I could be wrong and hopefully some one else with more experience with this items will be able to give you a propper answer.

    Thanks, I also had a feeling it could have been done before/after WWII. It certainly was not standard issued.

    It is a modified Haversack, nicely done, but not a standard issue item.

    Thanks for the lead edstorey, I found out this was originally a British WWII havershack
    designed in 1937 aka 37 pattern webbing small pack. It's neat but now I wish it had not been tampered with.

    1937 Pattern Haversack

    Yes, it is unfortunate but 1937 Pattern Haversacks are not that rare, yet - so you should not have a problem finding a nice unaltered example.

    I have a Brit P37 set with an unissued haversack that I'm selling if your interested. That is, if it hasn't sold yet. I have it at my antique booth and I haven't been there for a few weeks.

    Nice looking medic bag, I have a small pack medic bag in the collection as well. Canadian WE51 though.
