Can someone post dimensions or drawings of actual the actual drawers that are part of the MD1 chest?

Would also like to see dimensions, drawings, or close up photos of the litter brackets that were used.

I also measure up the Bandage Scissors (Item # 3468000), and have created the following image showing the dimensions:

The fibre tubing where the rubber attaches is an interesting feature, and one I don't recall my parents, teachers, or any of their other contemporaries from the wartime era ever mentioning. I presume this was a wartime measure to conserve brass? I've seen a few pencils with steel ferrules there, but this one is a real revelation!

The bandage scissors with dimensioning shown is quite helpful. The basic design doesn't appear to have changed, so for re-enacting purposes, a set of current production could potentially be used if there's not non-authentic stamping or engraving visible. I have an almost identical set in my own bag (for actual use -- not display) which is lightly engraved "Made in Pakistan" on one side. Things like that would have to be carefully kept out of sight!
