Dear readers,

We're pleased to announce that we have now been able to add another Article to the website. This new addition looks into the use of the Blanket by the Medical Department, with particular emphasis on Blanket Sets. It can be accessed via the Articles menu on the left hand side of the site (see "Medical Items" sub-menu) or click the link below to visit directly:

Medical Blankets and Blanket Sets

As usual, we certainly welcome your comments.

Thanks,
Ben and Alain :)

Thanks for your kind words, Loz! I have in my collection a Small Blanket Case which has a number of stencils showing its contents. I'll try and post a thread in the Reference Forum this evening showing the details.

I certainly agree, an event together would be a nice touch. Perhaps something to look into for next year?

Take care,
Ben ;)

As promised Loz, here is a shot of the Blanket Bag I have in my collection which has been used at some time to store items other than Blankets. The markings are little hard to make out from the photograph, but you can see the Item Number (97758 - Gas Casualty Case, Aprons and Gloves):
