Background information from the WW2 Medical Research Centre. Issued to almost every aircraft, one to each aircraft station, while.
States, that a minimum of five Kits was required per aircraft. However photographic evidence exists showing that these kits were certainly carried in greater numbers in troop carrying aircraft. The Kit was installed in an airplane on the basis of 1 Kit for every two men, or 1 per crew member at an isolated Station, within easy access of crew members (and passengers).
Bombers would normally have 4 Kits per plane, while Fighters would have 1 Kit per plane. Availability of such Kits on numerous occasions saved lives by enabling prompt emergency treatment of injuries.

Fasteners, two at the top, and two at the bottom, which clicked into four male fasteners located at some specific spots for securing the Kit to the aircrafts bulkhead. There was an early version, in khaki-colored canvas. Was installed in ALL combat, cargo, transport, training planes, and gliders at the Factory! The Kit was to be placed on board the aircraft (it was recommended to check its presence before any mission); it was always to be sealed (wire sufficiently small to be broken in case of emergency); it was to be stowed in its designated location (easily accessible); and if missing, it was to be replaced prior to flight.Morphine Syrettes, Sulfanilamide, and Halazone Tablets were to be removed from training aircraft, but NOT from combat planes. The rear was foreseen with a large canvas loop (in fact a sort of handle), and stitched onto a rectangular flap with four Lift-the-Dot fasteners, two at the top, and two at the bottom, which clicked into four male fasteners located at some specific spots for securing the Kit to the aircrafts bulkhead.
