Corpsman 14-280 bag

Addition to my earlier Navy Corpsman post. A WW2 medical bag officially designated “Case, Canvas, Carrying, 14-280”. The 14-280 bag was the predecessor of the 14-450 (introduced in 1942) but was used throughout the war. Great for early WW2 displays but you can also use it for later ones if desired.

Last but not least an interesting picture. It shows a corpsman treating a wounded Marine near the beach at Empress Augusta Bay, Bougainville. Since they are wearing P42 camouflage utilities i guess they are members of the 2nd Raiders. In the bottom left corner you can see what appears to be a 14-450 pouch.
