I'm thicking of doing someone up as a Sani. I want to know what would a Sani have carried. I only have limited resorces to see from. I see SOF's medic's pouch contains a couple of bandages, arm band and something that looks like a tempometer. I assume they'd have gauzes, plasma and morphine too though?

I'm sure 'Sani', our Tom will fill you in, he has extensive files.

If Tom can't help you then I can assist. Please let me know how you get on.

According to my Reibert manual:

LEFT BELT POUCH:

Combined pressure pad/bandage, dressings, bandage cloth, self adhesive plaster, safety-pins. In a small cloth bag: anatomical tweezers, straight pair of scissors, nail-cleaner(!)

RIGHT BELT POUCH:

Bandaging material, dressing packs, water proof bandaging material and ligature

SHOULDER BAG
The shoulder-bag (Krankenträgertasche zum Umhängen) is used by unmounted orderlies and replaced the normal belt bags from year 1942 on. The shoulder-bag is made of leather and is more practical when in use. The content ismore accessible than in the old belt-bags. The bag is carried by a shoulder-belt on the left shoulder and fastened to the belt. The shoulder-bag contains the same material as the belt-bags but more bandaging material.

Drugwise, I believe they carried anaesthesia (such as morphine), cardiovascular drugs (such as cardiazol), preperatory narcosis drugs (such as scopolamin) and local anaesthetics (such as novocaine). Most were carried as 1cc ampules, but some were available in hydrated tablet form.

That is by no means a definitive and concise guide however!

Dave

They appear on ebay from time to time - usually incorrectly described as either a reporting pouch, motorcyclists bag or cavalry mounted pouch. Prices range from £40-90 depending on condition. More if there are any contents. Be careful as there are post war ones - I'm not an expert, but from memory the main give-away is the nickle plated fittings and roller buckle on the shoulderstrap. They also tend to be black leather whereas originals are brown.

Another word of caution - be VERY careful if you find any original drugs - the ampules can break and release the contents, and the drugs can be controlled (such as morphine and cocaine). If you do find any with drugs in, its best to wash them out thoroughly, flush the contents down the toilet and replace with flour. For tablets, use something fairly neutral like vitamin supplements. Tics-tacs also make a refreshing alternative (and, as they say, they are only 1 calorie each ;) )

Looks OK, but missing the shoulder strap. Get some more pictures, particularly of the inside.

Medics also used the fur back packs which were specifically adapted. Have a look here: http://www.wwiidaybyday.com. Go to the medical services, then equipment and you can have a nose about. You'll find answers to just about every question you'll probably need answering, and in English!
