Parachute First-Aid Packet
Designed specifically for airborne troops, but also distributed to non-Airborne units, the parachute first-aid packet was a rubber-lined canvas pouch fitted with two canvas ties that allowed the packet to be fitted to a paratrooper in a variety of ways.
Contents of the packet included:
- 1 Small dressing or bandage
- 1 Field tourniquet
- 1 Morphine Syrette
- 1 Instruction sheet
- (Sulfa powder?)
Two common locations for placing the parachute first-aid packet were the front of the helmet and the upper chest.
