A group of three WW1 vintage dressings.
Dressings include cotton wool and two types of bandage, all contained in their original packets of issue sand with varying WD and date markings.
Extremely rare items.
With the conclusion of hostilities many surplus items were sold off for ‘private consumption’ to include vast quantities of medical supplies such as this. Having ‘survived’ the war certain period items like rations, certain items of clothing all suited to ‘civilian’ use to include bandages, have therefore not survived time and been long consumed, adding to their rarity today.
