Carl...I believe it might be technically "illegal" to possess morphine as it's Class A.

Carl,

I agree with Ian, I believe it might be ilegal to buy/sell an original morphine syrette.  They do make some very nice repros's of them.  I also believe Wound Tablet packets are relatively easy to obtain.  Check on Ebay.  If no luck, let me know I may have one stashed somewhere here.

Carl,

Unopened WW2 era first aid kits with the morphine syrettes have been known to bring up to and surpassing $1000. The commonly referred to "paratrooper" first aid kits which were seen attached to helmets etc. are what I am talking about, however these kits as you know were also carried by aircrew members, fighter pilots, etc., attached to the webbing of their chutes..

Here are a few pictures of the reproduction syrette from the vendor What Price Glory. They are only $7.00 USD.

Carl,

I think $80 is a reasonable price if it has the contents you mentioned..

Hey Carl,
Is the seller overseas? Might be worried about the items passing through customs, if so...

Even if local, not sure how thorough Royal Mail is, and if that could pose a problem as well. Of course not recommending you do anything illegal!  ;)
