The US Army M2 jungle first aid kit pouch was adopted on the 17th of August 1943, officially cataloged as: Kit, Jungle, Medical, Individual, M-2, NSN: 9710900. By 1944 these US Army WW2 M2 First Aid Kit Pouches were common in the areas of jungle fighting, for both Army and Marines, and remained in wide use in the Pacific Theater to the end of World War II. They were not issued in Europe where the Carlisle first aid kit continued as standard. The back of the pouch consists of M1910 hooks intended to be hung from a pistol or cartridge belt and a loop to have a service belt go through. The top is covered by two side flaps and a main flap with an additional pocket. A fabric loop in the flap pocket could hold bandages. The main top flap folded over and secured to the body with two large snaps. In late 1944, production was changed to make the dimensions a little larger. At that time the classification changed to: Container, For Kit, Jungle, Medical, Individual, M-2. The M-2 jungle first aid kit continued in use (primarily by the Marine Corps) through Korea and the early Vietnam War.
