Description: "Drugs and herbs in a fold-out wooden box, 28cm wide, 20cm high, 7.5cm deep. The box fits into a leather case, 29cm wide, 21cm high, 9cm deep. Folded out, the box comprises two sections, each covered by a leather flap.The flaps are stamped in gilt with two labels, the first reading "Miniature dispensary and tasteless medicines/ by Royal Letters Patent/ designed by Dr EA Kirby". The second label reads: "Laboratory 14 Newman St Oxford St."
The medical kit was owned and used by Dr Joseph Espie Dods (1874-1930), third son of Pat Marks's paternal grandmother, Elizabeth (nee Stodart), while serving as Regimental Medical Officer in the 5th Light Horse Regiment and possibly earlier in the Boer War as a Captain in the Army Medical Corps.
