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.

Research Facts
First Aid is a broad term that refers to aid or treatment of the sick or injured before full medical treatment can be received; skills are developed to provide knowledge on a variety of medical materials and treatments for minor wounds and 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.

Research Facts
S. O. S. was marketed as remedy for toothaches; the label claims that the formula contained no narcotics.
S. O. S. had anaesthetic action, which means it caused insensitivity to pain; this means it was a form of pain relief, not an actual treatment for a dental condition.
The D in diamond symbol embossed on the bottom indicates the bottle itself was made by Canadian glass manufacturer Dominion Glass Company; the Dominion Glass Company factory mark, first introduced in 1940, indicates this bottle was manufactured in Hamilton, Ontario; the Dominion Glass Company diamond logo was discontinued in 1970.
