Canadian Red Cross, "WWI Cloth Ditty Bag," https://www.redcross.ca/history/artifacts/wwi-cloth-ditty-bag
Research Facts
Bags like this were called "ditty bags," and were sewn by women across Canada who were volunteering with the Red Cross. The bags were meant to hold personal and hygiene items. Sometimes they would be given to military personnel empty in order to hold their personal items, and sometimes they were provided full of items such as a razor, soap, a toothbrush and toothpaste, a handkerchief, a pair of warm hand-knit socks, writing paper and envelopes, and perhaps gum and/or tobacco.

Judith Watt, "Muffs," Lovetoknow. https://fashion-history.lovetoknow.com/fashion-accessories/muffs
Research Facts
The first known appearances of muffs in history occur in the 1500s and 1600s. By the twentieth century, fur muffs and coats were a status symbol. They made a fashion comeback in World War Two, made from old furs to add some glamour to an outfit, but soon died out after that, as they were unwieldy and needed to be held, and therefore were not suitable for the modern, working women of the 1950s and beyond.

Research Facts
Label inside display mount reads, "Presented to the Officers Mess of the Mississauga Horse"; this regiment was an armoured regiment in Toronto prior to 1936. At that time, it joined with the Governor's Horse Guard Regiment, also an armoured regiment. "Flag of the 80th Field Ambulance, 29 Division"--Lieut-Col. Norman King Wilson served at Gallipoli as a surgeon working on the ship Calidonia as part of the 88 Field Ambulance of 29th Division, which was part of the British Expeditionary Force. He was a member of the Royal Army Medical Corps (RAMC). Possibly this flag flew over a casualty clearing station or the field ambulance in the battle area, and the other half has been shot away.
