Not really uniform/clothing but in the absence of a personal kit section of the forum...
I'm interested to know from those on here who served in the '50s to '80s period was it common to carry extra first aid items in addition to the issued field/shell dressings? Even just a tin of elastoplast? I'm basing this line of though on photos of Fusilier Payne's kit from WW2, he had provided himself with a small first aid kit consisting of bandage, elastoplast and lint and I can imagine the practice of supplementing issue first aid items continuing post-war but as usual I don't like to assume.
Was a general issue first aid kit introduced in this period? I know of the jungle J-Pack but thinking of a more widely issued item.
Many thanks in advance!
