Mabel Stobart (1862-1954) used this medical kit to treat her patients during the First World War. Before the war she had set up a medical training camp in Dorset to teach women to treat the sick and wounded in battle. In 1914 she formed the National Service League and created field hospitals in Belgium and France.
