Hi all,
can anyone point me in the direction of some reference material about these? From what I can dig up it had Field Dressings & a Water Purification kit, but that's it, no amounts.
I have a 45 dated example & I'd like to stock it up for my Korean War Impression.
Any help is much appreciated
Ian

In the chaos of battle, when the ground beneath your feet is a slurry of blood, puke, p**s and the entrails of friends and enemies alike, it's easy to turn to the gods for salvation. But it's soldiers who do the fighting, and soldiers who do the dying, and the gods never get their feet wet.

Be very careful about loaning original items...also, please keep an eye out for :
*Still missing* Because some folks are devoid of an ounce of honesty or integrity.
Women's Navy Great Coat
Green floor length 1930s evening dress with sleeves set on net.
Blue and white rayon dress with peplum
Black velvet halter necked dress with silver shot thread skirt (may still have Harrods label in it) I have photos of all of these items and I know where they are in Scunthorpe, but would appreciate a nod if they come up for sale. [/color]

Oggy,

If you PM me your email I'll send you a quick scan of the kit and contents. I would post a list but can't quite make out some of the labels, but you should be able to make them out by the bottle size and general layout of the label.

Cheers,
Pip
