Description

During WWII, Comfort Kits were filled with toiletries and other comforts from home and sent to Doughboys overseas. While available to purchase commercially, many of these were made and distributed by local Red Cross chapters.

This particular Comfort Kit is made using the original Red Cross pattern in a khaki cotton twill, as prescribed, and is trimmed with the appropriate khaki twill and bias tape. Comfort kits were stocked with shaving items, sewing items, and other sundries, such as pipes, tobacco, games, and writing kits.
