Very rare U.S PARATROOPER WW2 "FIRST-AID",complete with its original first aid kit, with the name and serial number of the Paratrooper "J . JOHNSON T-3114" .P.s It's barely readable under the string the name of paratrooper and his number " J . JOHNSON T-3114 "
What I propose today is one of the most desirable articles by collectors like me, lovers of history but above all of landing in Normandy.
It is the first aid kit that was used by all American parachutists on the night of the famous overlord operation. More commonly called by the historical "DDAY".
This is a piece of exceptional value, coming from a Norman collection, because over the years the priority in our family has been that of collecting relics belonging to the American Paratrooper disembarked in France and Holland.
The exceptional peculiarity of this "FIRST - AID" is that in addition to being already very rare to findw, presents under one of its straps the name of the Paratrooper and its serial number "J. JOHNSON T-3114", which unfortunately they can hardly read. (but I think that finding a heirloom already very rare by itself, but that also presents the soldier's name and serial number is a fantastic thing).
As you can see in the photos the bag is also complete with its first green aid kit still present inside.
The bag, on the other hand, shows evident signs of wear and signs of rust, despite being kept in collector by a famous collector who probably decided to keep it that way.
The rescue kit is in exceptional historical conditions considering it is almost 80 years old. it is very dirty and there are cuts on the canvas.
The biggest discovery was when I realized that inside her there was her original relief kit as the canvas was opening, and as you collectors know that this rescue kit could be opened in 2 ways, namely, or following ripping the line or opening it as a bunch of chips.
As you can see from the photos, the rescue kit is green and has been closed for more than 80 years. The letters "SMALL - FIRST - AID DRESSING U.S. ARMY CARLISLE MODEL STERILIZED, RED COLOR INDICATES BACK OF DRESSING PUT OTHER SIDE NEXT TO WOUND".
The kit is still closed in its green packaging and I did not allow it to touch or open it.
To tell you an extraordinary piece to complete an American ww2 paratrooper dummy but above all a piece that has lived for all these years in the place where its owner fought.
One of the ropes of the kit has a knot this made me think that it was probably his legacy who perhaps tied him to his helmet or to his arm as it was common to use, or as you can see from the photos that I put there.
An amazing piece of incredible historical value!
