Product Description

Original WW2 US Carlisle First Aid Dressing

They are in good to very good condition for being 70 plus years old

P The First-Aid Packet, Carlisle Model was developed by the U.S. Army Medical Department Equipment Laboratory at Carlisle Barracks, PA in the 1920s, originally called "First-aid Packet, U.S. Government Carlisle Model"

Every soldier carried one in a web pouch on his equipment belt

The dressing carried inside the pouch was intended as an immediate compress to stop bleeding from a wide variety of wounds and establish a sterile covering. It consisted of a white linen gauze pad with long gauze tails so it could be tied around an arm or even the chest. Brief instructions were stenciled on the bandage in red ink.
