History and use
This Original Record syringe case belonged to Dr H. C. Taylor – the honorary Assistant Director of the Red Cross Blood Bank in Brisbane during the 1960s. It is a rare example of German-made World War Two medical equipment, much of which was destroyed after the war. Made of silver and brass, the case holds its original syringe and is inscribed with Taylor’s name. The case is part of Queensland Museum's Red Cross collection.
