Research Facts
Lieutenant Colonel Allan M. Davidson was a medical officer in the Royal Canadian Army Medical Corps; this first aid kit was issued to him while serving as Commanding Officer and Surgical Specialist of Canadian Field Surgical Team in Korea during the Korean War in 1952; Lt. Col. Davidson had a distinguished military and medical career, holding chief and head surgical positions at several hospitals in Canada and around the world; in addition to his service in Korea, Lt. Col. Davidson was also posted to Japan; he served in Egypt at the United Nations Hospital Middle East in 1957, the Gaza Strip, and represented the Surgeon General as Canadian Forces Medical Liaison Officer with The Surgeon General U. S. Army in Washington D. C. from 1962 to 1964; Lt. Col. Davidson retired from the military in 1970 and entered civilian practice in Peterborough, Ontario.
The Korean War was fought between forces supporting the communist government of North Korea and those supporting the democratic government of South Korea between 1950 and 1953; it was one of the first major conflicts of the Cold War era; Canada, along with the United States and other United Nations forces supported South Korea, while North Korea received military aid from China; over 26 000 Canadians were deployed over the course of the conflict; 7 000 Canadians served in Korea following the end of active conflict in 1953, and all Canadian military personnel withdrew by 1957.
First Aid is a broad term that refers to aid or treatment of the sick or injured before full medical treatment can be received; First Aid kits are designed to provide easy access to a variety of medical materials for fast treatment of minor wounds or to stabilize more serious conditions before additional treatment; these skills are especially vital in military situations where quick response to trauma and injuries is vital.
