Parachutist First Aid Kit at the flea market

Recommended Posts

The flea market gods smiled at me today. Found this unopened original parachutist first aid kit just sitting there on a table waiting for me to walk up and buy it for $10!

...unopened...

Hi,

 

Congrats of course but also one small question: Unopened? With morphine syrette? Is it legal in the USA to trade morphine on the flea markets?

 

I know I know, curiosity killed the cat, but it is interesting. In EU it would be impossible.

 

Best regards

 

Greg

Gregory... possible - impossible - in Poland I had two sets: Hot and Wet environment Surivival kits and Individual survival kits from Vietnam Era. All sets included "Stay awake AMPHETAMINA pills" I think the police dont care about it...

 

cheers ,

Fantastic find there Robin!

 

Concerning the illegal substance that might be included in these packs, I've seen these syrettes being sold in their untouched condition (full), same thing for atropine/bella donna, even opium. I see this each year at the biggest militaria show in Belgium, where police is always present. I guess they just don't really care...
