This photo series captures a Carpenter Tool Kit with a older style wooden box. I have dubbed this set (version 1) because there are newer Carpenter Tool Kits in use that have newer composite storage boxes. These kits in wooden boxes began getting replaced roughly in the late 90's. However, at the time of these photos May 2013, they are still in use.
Although the tool box is marked 'Engineer Squad', this tool kit is issued across the force structure to units authorized it based on Modified Tables of Organization and Equipment (MTOE). The tool kit shown belonged the Headquarters section of an Infantry Light Rifle Company.
