Yes, I also saw the squad kits, but don't ever recall while on active duty seeing a new in the wrap sealed parts kit like Johnny shows here. Saw plenty of loose parts, but not in the old, original packaging.

Bill Ricca sold the wrapped cans.
A hard variation to find with the rods. This one dates to the late 1930's, and while it still has the removable wood and metal rod racks of the earlier kits, the holders are steel rather than brass. Each part of the kit; the wood block, rod holders, and top and bottom of the case all have Drawing Numbers. The unfinished steel rods are marked U.H.CO. at the top of the loop. The box is marked CLIMAX on the bottom.
In my years of going to gun shows I never found enough WWII cleaning rods by the same manufacturer to make a complete cleaning kit.
