German WWII Luftschutz Military First Aid Kit Box

Up for auction is a World War II German First Aid Box. The box is made from metal and the interior bottom has a wooden base. Stenciled on the top lid is; Luftschutz (which means Anti-Air Craft but also could mean Civil Defense and Verbandkasten is First Aid Kit. This could have been used by both the military and for civil defense (civilians) against air raids. The top inner lid contains a list of the contents it once held, and their uses. Under column "A", these were remedies for Mechanical Injuries/Wounds, "B" was for Burn Wounds, also for Chemical Burns, and I believe C was to treat Chemical Warfare incidents. Also stamped on the inner lid is the name of a Druggist/Drugstore in Berlin, that perhaps filled this box. The box measures; 4" tall x 13-3/4" x 7-1/2". It does have paint wear and some rust spots and the interior has a musty smell, but overall, it's a really neat old box.
