The medical pack for Fallschirmjäger was designed to be used instead of the heavy metal or wood Verbandkasten for ground troops. It could be carried into action by one man & provided the bare essentials for treating combat wounds in the absence of an organised forward field hospital. Contents would include, limited surgical tools, bandages, morphine, syringe, ointments etc.
Marsh 44 pattern camouflage cover with a list of contents printed on the reverse side & instructions for use printed on the inside of the cloth panel.
No contents apart from the frame, which are a pair of splints.
A Photo. of the field grey type with typical contents can be seen in the excellent book - German Paratroops by Robert Kurtz.
A very rare piece, especially in camo.
