Another disturbing discovery in the pantry! A “U.S. General Purpose First Aid Kit”. That General Purpose was a popular commander… I know, because I see his name everywhere.

First Aid Kit

No one knows where this came from. More than likely, it has always been in the pantry, and was here when we bought the house. Inside are gauze bandages, tubes of petrolatum, some ammonia inhalants, etc.

But the weirdest items was the “Phensal Gray” – a bottle that looks like it contains fiberglass. The label says, “Each tablet represents: Aspirin 260 mg, Phenacetin 130 mg, Caffeine 16 mg”.

Phensal Gray

Heaven knows how old this stuff is. There’s no expiration date on any of it. I can’t wash my hands enough to get the idea of that Phensal Gray off of them, even though I never opened the bottle.
