What an amazing example of "celebrity endorsement"! I'd never heard of Zam-Buk before, but my Mum had! Still available - see http://www.zam-buk.com/

I hadn't heard of it either but it must be good if it is still going strong today. If it was good for Private Acton V.C., it is certainly good for a somewhat less important person like me!  ;)I must admit they certainly made good use of advertising!

Gosh, I remember Zam-Buk ointment. It was a staple in our medical supplies at home. I haven't seen it for years (decades probably!).
