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."

Research Facts
This is Dr. E. H. Botterell's modification of the McKenzie model; in 1938, Dr. Botterell modified McKenzie's tongs; Joseph Sachetti was the first patient they were used on; (1) the locking device controlling penetration of the points was unchanged; (2) the points were greatly shortened and the shoulders were enlarged; in sum, it then became easier for the patient to lie on his side; penetration of the dura was more difficult; the points continued to be inserted into the skull at right angles to the line of traction; these tongs were taken overseas and used during the war in the Basingstoke Neurological and Plastic Surgery Hospital, RCAMC; has a shoulder on the pointed post to limit the penetration into the skull; incision in skin required; shoulder was not always effective; not in use in 1976.
