BACKGROUND: The first aid packet had been developed during the 1920's by the Medical Department Equipment Laboratory at Carlisle barracks while the dressing was introduced in 1906. This lead to the "First Aid Packet, US Government Carlisle Model." In order to identify the packets with Sulfanilamide (which was introduced to the packet in 1941) the contents were listed on the covering of the tin. They were sealed in pressed brass, rectangular container with a cover, bottom and seal to ensure the sterility of the dressing.

PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: This press brass, red painted rectangular, unopened container, measures approximately 10cm x 5cm x 3cm with metal seal in place. The container shows moderate to heavy usage and wear with paint wear, as well as a dent to center.
