Seller. Ben Langworthy.

“Dated 1955 and stamped with the British military broad arrow. The bag is what is known as a shell dressing bag and would have been used by medics to carry a compact dressing and first aid kit on the field. I love so many things about this piece that its hard to know where to start.

These are of an unusual design and are quite different to the webbing satchels you sometimes find. Firstly for ease of access the shoulder strap is attached at the rear of the bag meaning that it doesn't get in the way. The lid of the bag is also stitched in such a way that it always retains its shape. I also love the brass caps on the ends of the straps and the brass buckles. However, my favourite detail has to be the hand painted red cross design on the front of the bag. This has aged beautify but had been horribly painted over when I got the bag. I spent several hours restoring it back to its former glory!”
