Question the DALMA CASE???

During my preliminary Spring clean in the Lab (yes even the YT does the dusting and polishing too).

I came to my 1`st aid box, and thought I`de ask You guys also (I`ve asked almost everyone else I can think of that may know, before now).

It`s a little wooden box, and still has some the original kit in there, it`s from 1926, and the wood is stamped with 84 as is the hinged cover.
there`s bandages in there with the instructions for application writen on them too! and tin of Boracic ointment (hardly used).

has anyone here ever seen one or know anything about them at all?

Google has Zero Data on it???

well other than the occasional polishing of the outside and contents check (expirey dates etc...) for the New stuff in there, all is just as it was, and hanging on the wall of my Lab ready to do its "job" that hopefully never sees action.

it`s got a red (probably Lead paint) Sheild with a white cross on the pull down lid, and on the case itself just under that lid "the DALMA CASE" in gold leaf with black outlining (most has worn off now though).

I know it sounds Crazy but you can tell even by the Faces in the Drawings on the bandage come sling come whatever you wanted it to be, that they are NOT of this era :)

I know nothing about it but I would love to take it to an appraiser to see how much it is worth.

Can you post a few photos? You have my curiosity aroused.

(And when I get aroused, watch out!)

I'm betting it's WWI-era stuff, YT.

After seeing the pictures, I would have to concur with mudbug. At least World War II era, perhaps earlier. The graphics tell a lot.

Has the box always been in your lab? Do you have any clue as to whom it belonged before it came into your possession?

I imagine Buck will have some thoughts on the subject later. Fascinating "quest" you have for yourself.

I'm intrigued by what might come after the word DALMA. Are you sure it's case? I think this would be more likely to be described as a cabinet. Have you any idea what kind of wood it is? Oak? The pictures of how to use the triangular bandage are excellent!

it hasn`t Always been in my Lab no, I bought it in a second shop some 7+ years ago for peanuts, the label inside is dated 1926, as for the wood I have no idea either?

the words on the front say "the `DALMA CASE`" , sadly the cam cannot do this justice though :(
DALMA CASE is in Quotes the THE isn`t though, it`s outside the quotes.
