First Aid Kit, circa 1966

on January 16, 2014

I remembered today that I wanted to check the First Aid kit in the White Knight.  It the last thing remaining from the previous owners.  Well, being a Paramedic, I think I have a good handle on what makes up a usable First Aid kit.  I opened the box and 1966 came out!  First, the smell…..ewwwwwww!!  I had to pry most of the cardboard boxes out, they were stuck to the metal box.  I found some really interesting items, like a tin of 5grain aspirin, a shrink wrapped road flare and a bunch of dried out smelling salts!  I had a smaller kit that I tore apart and with that and what I could salvage from the kit shown, I managed to put together a decent kit.  So….if you are nearby and need medical help, consider me ready to help!!!

This is right after I took everything out.  Most went straight to the trash, some parts were salvageable.  Paul thought maybe it would interest a collector, but the smell was enough to throw that idea out!

I know it was 1966 because it had paperwork and instruction manuals with that date on it.  That was a longgggg time ago!
