A medical aid bandage still sealed within its tin container (which was developed to protect the bandage in a gas attack), the bandage manufactured and packaged by Bauer & Black of Chicago under a 1916 contract. The tin containing the bandage is still sealed and the "D" ring which would be pulled to open the tin is intact. The bandage is within its original 1916 dated olive green cotton medical pouch. The color of the pouch is a bit faded in spots from exposure to light, but overall the set is in very good condition.
