    Hi, I came across a bunch of Commonwealth Dressings and medic items (incl. Canada and India) and an Airforce First aid Kit bag.
    Do you still collect these?
    Cheers

    Hi,
    I am still looking through all the items. It is a large box containing German, US, Brit, Chzech, Polish, Russian, Swiss, French dressings and bandages from WW1 to modern days.

    Shall I only show british dressings here and make a new thread for the rest ?

    Only British ones here, but the others would also be very interesting, and worth their own post.

    ok guys, I got pictures taken of all the dressings.
    Let's start.

    First is the "First Aid Outfit Aircraft".
    Incomplete contents. Two shell dressings, both same maker and dated Sept. 1941.
    Does anyone know what that brown "bag" of rubber was used for ?
    Does it blong into this kit at all ?


    By the way: I do not collect Allied except for some US equipment, so if you are interested in the first aid dressings, I am open for trades, preferably German medical items.

    no date present.

    It is for wound treatment, but I am not sure if this is civilian or military.
