You would be surprised at the variation between various European countries for the requirements/recommendations for the contents of First Aid kits.


We have one for our N+B, presumably supplied new and labelled as OK for German requirements. We took it recently to our Doctor, who is a friend, and her comment was that it was only useful for 'injuries'.


I had already realised that we should have anti-histamine. Her only additional recommendation was cream for post mosquito bites. Anything else she said go to hospital/pharmacy.


Some kits,e.g. on aircraft, include morphine, but carrying that across borders would be dodgy.

Don't forget pump adaptors for various countries in Europe. Not all LPG pump connections are the same.

Collect 2005 seaspirit tomorrow.
Cooking in the van is, erm, different. I would get a cook book that gives recipes for "one pot" meals. Or google some. or put a post up on here. So much easier and less washing up!
