    These were some of my recent finds at the Flea Market. First is a Boy Scouts of America Official First Aid Kit. It's a 6"h x 4"w x 2"d green with red lettering and a first-aid cross, metal box, with a hinged and latching cover, prepared by Johnson & Johnson. It has a list of items that are supplied in the(now empty) Kit, on the inside of the cover, it also has two belt loops on the back, for carrying on the Scouts belt. To the left side of the Kit is a 1940 Boy Scouts membership card, for Troup 40 Louisville, Kentucky, and also the National Council N.Y.,New York, until 1941. Laying flat in front is a 1965 membership card for Troup 33 Mill Valley, Calif. To the right of the Kit is a 1966 First Class Scout certification card for the San Francisco Bay Area Council. Directly in front of the Kit is a small book Indians of America by Lillian Davids Fazzini copyright 1935 with a forward by Dan Beard, that reads in part "I would not be surprised if the demand for it by the Scouts, Cubs, Camp Fire Girls, and Girl Scouts, put the Indian book among the best sellers."
    The brown folding pocket knife to the right of the Kit is a Boy Scout, by Imperial Prov. USA. In front of that is the green Girl Scout folding pocket knife, by Kutmaster Utica N. Y. In the very front is what I call a Fixed Blade Survival Knife, it's made by Imperial Prov. R.I., and has a 5" blade, with a sawtooth top edge, and 3 3/4" handle. You might call it something else! :^D

    Thank you for looking, I'll try to answer any questions, and all comments are welcome! :^)

      Thank you Jenni, and that Indians of America book was my most recent find, and was surprised to see that forward, suggesting the high demand to buy for all Scouts! It turned out to be the thing that tied everything else together, for the post! :^D
      My Tribe, the Karuk, of Northern California, is not included in the book though!

      Thanks buckethead, you're welcome! Yes, that Girl Scout knife is one the you usually don't see, it had a little surface rust, that I was able to clean off, other than that it's in great condition, for being an older knife! :^D

      Oh! #1 Mary, and AnnaB, were either of you in the Scouts, and maybe remembering days gone by? :^D Well, you loved what you saw, and I thank you! :^)

      All fine items. I am especially liking the membership card and the boy scout knife. The art work is by Norman Rockwell for the membership card.
    10. billretirecoll billretirecoll, 4 years ago
      Thanks Brian, yes I think the Boy Scout knife is a more recent one, but the Girl Scout knife is older early 1970s? or older! :^D The Membership card may have been a cover for Boys Life magazine, but I know it was done by Norman Rockwell! :^)
