A relic of Sir John Franklin's last expedition 1845-1848. A plain brass box with a hinged lid and a steel striking surface to one side obtained from the Inuit at Repulse Bay in 1854 by the Rae Expedition. The Inuit said that they had found the material at a camp to the north west of the mouth of the Back River where a party of Europeans had died of starvation.
