Unique WWII USA Army Medical ''Snake Bite Kit''. The kit was made to be worn in the webbing first aid pouch.
The Snake-Bite Kit, sometimes designated Suction Kit, was a first-aid item used against snake or poison insect bites, and for wounds caused by poison arrows or other missiles. It is to be used together with a Tourniquet. The Kit was distributed among troops operating in closed and remote jungle areas. In some cases, it would have been used as a personal first-aid item by Aidmen and Hospital Corpsmen or by individual soldiers.
This is a really difficult to find item (hardly ever seen one for sale in Western-Europe), which will be a fantastic centerpiece in your WW2 collection!
