Summary

This "Zonas Adhesive Plaster" was in the first aid kit Charles Lindbergh and his wife, Anne Morrow Lindbergh, took on their 1931 survey flight to the Orient. Since they were traveling over vast expanses of uninhabited territory where medical attention would be hard to find, even a small injury could have been fatal. Always meticulous planners, Charles and Anne considered this and took a first aid kit to treat small wounds.
