The sight that greeted the British troops who liberated Bergen-Belsen in 1945 was one of unimaginable horror.
Some 70,000 had died at the Nazi concentration camp and another 60,000 were starving and sick.
Among those brought in to help the survivors was a British Army medic, Major John Russell Grice, and to mark Holocaust Memorial Day, the medical kit he used has now been gifted to the nation by his family.
Defence correspondent Caroline Wyatt has been to the National Army museum to see it and spoke to Surgeon Lieutenant Colonel Jedge Lewin, the regimental surgeon to the Household Cavalry Mounted Regiment, to see what a modern-day medic made of it.
