I find it takes quite a while to apply these damn things, but I have
little idea what they actually were. Perhaps someone can enlighten me.

1. What was the purpose of rib tapes?
2. What were they made of?
3. Were they used on non-lozenge fabric covered flying surfaces?
4. Did anyone beside the Germans use them?
5. How were they applied?

Much obliged,
