Two types of grease guns were used in the jeeps during the world war.
The first type is shown in the pic posted by by male_dude001. It was a
Alemite gun, model number 5585 and was used till early 1944 and was
stored in the tool box. Thereafter Alemite grease gun model no. 6593
was supplied and was affixed under the hood using a bracket.

thanksdor the picture....

Your first aid kit looks great but I guess the ones which came in the GPW & MB had "stock 9-221 200" written on the lid.

Is your oiler have 4" diameter & 6" high???
Yes for a GPW the correct grease gun would be Alemite 5535.
Wrt your Irwin I am sure it's not the correct one... Your is I presume 8" long where the correct one shld be 11" long. Nevertheless a great set of tools indeed. Can I have ur phone no: so that we can speak OTP.

Rejo,
The first aid kits were issued in the field by the Army Medical Corps and
were sourced from various manufacturers like Richard Green & Co., Mine Safety Appliances, etc,. They came in various markings like
"Stock No. 9-221-200", "9777300", "Gas Attack" or just plain "U.S. Army Medical Department", etc., depending on which arm of the defense forces it was given to.
But one thing that it should be, is a "12 Unit Kit".

The oil can is the correct item with the correct knurled base. I will have to dig out the screwdriver from my garage and check the size. But i think you
could be right about the size. It was definitely not 8 inches but not 11 inches either.

Thanks for appreciating.
Sent you a PM.

Cheers
Vaibhav

btw did the Gas casuility Kit came as a part of the ww2 jeep tool kit. I think they came after April 1943.

Rejo,
I like to think that since they were mentioned in the FM21-11
(War Department Field Manual, First Aid for Soldiers), which was dated
7th April 1943, the gas casualty kits must have been around slightly before that.
But i guess April'43 onwards would be foolproof.
But it was not a part of the tool kit. It was allotted later by the Medical Corps/Battalion

Cheers
