The introduction states;
 
“In the Naval Service, especially during hostilities, everyone should be able to apply the simple pro- cedures of First Aid to the injured. This knowledge must be acquired before the emergency arises, and can be achieved only by practice and study. Every ship is supplied with First Aid chests, and in addition compact kits are placed in gun-turrets and at other strategic points. Each man should know the contents of these kits, and how to use them. The purpose of this handbook is to show the simplest way in which first aid principles may be applied. An attempt has been made to avoid a confusion of facts on Anatomy, Physiology and Surgery, and to give the salient points of each first aid problem without unneces- sary detail. It should not be felt that first aid is impos- sible without a large stock of medical supplies, so alter- nate and make-shift methods are frequently included to be used in case of such deficiency. "Efficient First Aid may be a life-saving knowledge."
