    Aha!

    The infamous "Wound Tablets".
    I have a couple of these still with all the pills, but have yet to find one with the lid in place or even in the packet.

    Indeed Debatable as to whether they did more harm than good. They were, if it were any consolation, the least toxic of the 'Sulpha' anti-biotics. Interestingly they were used post war to treat urinary tract infections and, even more interestingly, the drug they lead to, Trimethoprim, is still used today for the exact same thing.

    Here endeth the lesson for today...........

    Thanks for the IDs Paul & Steve.
    Iv got a few packets of "up john" now and i allways just thought they were for air sickness. You live and learn.
    Today i was looking in my boxes of unclean finds and found another windowscreen wiper.
