As I mentioned in the original photoset, the kit was incomplete. I had to add several instruments to it.

Noah those are great. Forgive my ignorance. What were the brass pins for?

Pinning a roller bandage in place.

Pinning the lips of a wound together, then threading suture thread around them in a figure 8 pattern.

I am beginning to despise Facebook. First, overhauls of the layout without bothering to ask us. Now links expired. What's the point of having public link access if they expire?

Hopefully that will "refresh" it.

Sorry about that!

Yes, Facebook is getting a bit aggravating. Never have found it easy to navigate.

Anyway, cool photos. Well, the ones in focus. :lol: Sorry, it's the photographer in me. Really, thanks for sharing your collection with us.

By the way, I'm thinking of just going to events as a civilian from now on.
