Forgot to mention Id recommend at least one sterile gauze pad (3x3
or 4x4. I believe our Kingdom Chirurgeon recommended 4x4).
Its purpose would be for immediate action on bad or large bleeding.
With at least one in place for the blood to clot around you gain
some time to obtain more first aid supplies. Preferably by sending
someone to get them for you.
Reminder the above is a recommendation (only) for a very small thus
easily carried set.

Anyone else having problems finding a suitable saline solution to carry with them? The only one I found is a glass container, so I keep a few alcohol wipes in case I'm in an area without water and don't have my larger kit with me.
