Roller Bandage Stickers
Many thanks, Traie,
I, too had found the photos on the Alex Peck site, and I was especially excited to have found the photo of the Tiemann first aid kit. I set out on a six-month search for small, oval gummed stickers or seals because I'd recalled seeing a whole box of them in my grandmother's desk when I was small. Unfortunately, the contents of the desk got discarded twenty-four years ago! The product was by the Dennison label company. After an unsuccessful search, I was ready to make my own seals when I discovered the aforementioned US Sanitary Commission Bulletin in which the use of two small pins was mentioned as the appropriate appliance for fastening. Excellent bit of sleuthing young man!
I remain as ever, your faithful & obedient servant,
