    Alkaloid & Mallein are toxins (acids)
    desinfektionsmittel = disinfectant

    So it was either a holder for these or something was disinfected in the tin!

    I have similar tins in one of my Doctors field kits. Tins are either numbered or named. I expect this corresponds to the appropriate Hdv packing list that states exactly the contents to be carried? I notice the V 214 might indicate Vetinare as large amount of vets were employed to keep the horses on the road. If I can find my vet kit I will check it for anything similar.

    Jock thanks that would be cool . Also the tin looks like it was lined on both sides only the felt is left on the lid. Gary
