Research Facts
Beginning with William Harvey's experiments on the circulation of blood, research into blood transfusion began in the 17th century, with successful experiments in transfusion between animals. However, successive attempts by physicians to transfuse animal blood into humans gave variable, often fatal, results.
James Blundell in london, UK, successfully transfused human blood in 1818. The largest series of early successful transfusions took place at the Edinburgh Royal Infirmary between 1885 and 1892. Edinburgh later became the home of the first blood donation and blood transfusion services. It was not until 1901, when the Austrian Karl Landsteiner discovered three human blood groups (O, A, and B), that blood transfusion was put onto a scientific basis and became safer.
The First World War acted as a catalyst for the rapid development of blood banks and transfusion techniques. Canadian doctor and Lieutenant Lawrence Bruce Robertson was instrumental in persuading the Royal Army Medical Corps to adopt the use of blood transfusion at the Casualty Clearing Stations for the wounded. In October 1915, Robertson performed his first wartime transfusion with a syringe to a patient suffering from multiple shrapnel wounds. He followed this up with four subsequent transfusions in the following months.
Dr. Fransman graduated from medical school in 1940 and lived in Amsterdam. Worked in Holland, England during WWII. Came to Kingston General Hosptial, Ontario in 1951 as a chest specialist and managed the TB clinincs. Radiologist specialist in 1960 and managed the x-ray department at Kingston General Hosptial, retiring in 1983. Post-retirement he worked at the Collins Bay prison, Kingston Psychiatric Hopsital, Ongwanada and St. Mary's of the Lake, retiring again in 1996.

A hand written note on the back of the photograph claims it was taken in 1952 in Korea, however a newspaper article featuring a copy of the photograph appeared in the Winnipeg Free Press on July 6, 1957; the caption accompanying photograph in the Winnipeg Free Press states that the photograph depicts Davidson, then a Major, and Major Hetherington speaking to Yugoslav 2nd Lieutenant Behosja Orlavio following an operation at a Canadian Base hospital in Egypt in 1957; Orlavio was severely wounded by a mine explosion.
Canadian Forces and other U. N. peacekeeping forces were deployed to Egypt and the Gaza Strip following conflict in the region over control of the Suez Canal; Egypt achieved independence following the Second World War, but the British and French still controlled the Suez Canal; in 1956, Egypt forcibly took control of the Canal, prompting Great Britain, France, and Israel to respond militarily; the global response to the Suez Crisis was the first major U. N. peacekeeping mission in history, which is seen as the beginning of modern international peacekeeping; future Canadian Prime Minister Lester B. Pearson, then Minister of External Affiars, was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for his role in organizing the peacekeeping mission; Egypt and the Gaza Strip remained a hot spot for conflict in the decades following the Suez Crisis.

Research Facts
This style of heavy duty luggage was transformed and outfitted with custom lift-out trays and drawers by the military into various equipment trunks including footlockers.
McBrine Luggage Company Limited founded by Louis McBrine, born Feb. 26, 1866, as a Canadian Manufacturer of valises, luggage and trunks.
Louis McBrine was a "valise manufacturer" circa 1901. Circa 1911 he was involved in manufacturing trunks. He and his partner, W. G. Cleghorn, founded McBrine Luggage, in Berlin, Ontario (Kitchener, Ont.) which from 1905 until into the 1960s was one of the world's largest luggage manufacturing businesses. The company was still making briefcases circa 1965.
The Canadian Military General Order No 63 was issued on 13 May 1915, authorizing the Canadian Army Dental Corps (CADC) as a separate corps. When the Army, Royal Canadian Navy, and Royal Canadian Air Force were merged in 1968 to form the Canadian Forces, the Royal Canadian Dental Corps and Royal Canadian Army Medical Corps were deactivated and merged with their Naval and Air Force counterparts to form the Dental Branch and the Canadian Forces Medical Service of the Canadian Forces Health Services Group (CF H Svcs Gp). The rifle green beret was adopted as the CF standard.
An announcement dated 9 October 2013 revived the title Royal Canadian Dental Corps for the dental services branch of the Canadian armed forces.
