    thanks for your input guys, but I'm still at a little bit of a loss, as all the images of first aid bags i can seem to find seem smaller, and have loops etc for splints on the inside of flap, like this:

    whereas mine has an internal divider to separate the main body into two compartments, which none of the first aid bags ive seen have.

    If it was to carry blankets Kradman, would there be a need for the divider?

    It does not match what I would expect a FA bag to look like, though I have no idea what it is, apart from the jumbo size it looks like a signals satchel, but obviously not.

    Whatever its just an opinion.
