Research Facts
This retractor was designed by Major S.J. Streight and made by Private Whitehead of No. 2 Canadian Casualty Clearing Station during the winter of 1917. At that time this clearing station was handling many casualties; stationed in the Ypres area. "We found that this retractor protected the soft tissues from further damage and enabled us to retract them so as to saw through the bone at a higher level. This was found particularly useful in amputations through the thigh and leg."

They are used in both first aid and surgery, and can also be used to locate a vein prior to injection. This particular tourniquet has a wooden block which is placed on the pressure point, and a metal buckle to secure and tighten the tourniquet around the limb.
