CASE, HYPODERMIC & OPHTHALMIC
RAMC personel were issued with "Cases, Hypodermic & Ophthalmic". These were a small metal case containing a range of controlled drugs, which would be needed for the treatment of the wounded. Medical Officers would keep these cases (among many other items) in the right hand basic pouch. Once empty of their original contents, these cases were often re-used for storing cigarettes!
