This amputation case was the University of Edinburgh prize for military surgery. It was awarded to John Murray, Session 1843 - 1844. Dr. Murray went on to use these instruments during the Crimean War.
The instruments were manufactured by Archibald Young ltd, Edinburgh, one of Edinburgh’s longest surviving surgical instrument makers.
