G'day Scott! In those days Flying was probably a bigger health hazard than Smoking!

Thanks for posting this, Scott. It is encouraging to learn that the
practice of "celebrity endorsements" extended to aces, bushpilots,
and barnstormers. Now I wonder what Udet, Barker and Bill Lambert endorsed...

Does this endorsement imply that the cigarettes have the same taste as the incendiary filler in Buckingham ammunition?

I'm reading too many WW1 aviation books. Buckingham incendiary rounds were the FIRST thing I thought they were talking about...

Buckingham Incendiary Cigarettes - they glow, they are hot, leave a trail of smoke, and they likely lead to an early death!
