IMO, any use of friends in a class is bad design, and effectively means that all of your class' design is public. As the friend has access to any private data, you cannot modify your design without consulting with the author of the friend.
In large projects, this way leads to madness.

We have had a smallish problem. Company policy dictates secure drives, fine. Several of our devices use old USB drives (one has a maximum of 256MB!) Due to their function and approvals it is not possible to change/upgrade them. How can you get a 'secure' 128K memory stick today (or ever)...
You'll be lucky ... that kind of size is well and truly out of date ...
In fact, you'll be hard pressed to find any USB1 sticks about, regardless of size.
I'd try contacting the last people you bought from, and seeing if they have "redundant stock" lying about the warehouse, or will give you their supplier details if you explain the situation. Buy all you can, and start the approvals procedure for a less restricted device!

Well I am told the last time, we bought all the ones that people had hidden down the back of the virtual sofa... This encryption malarkey is just odd, I mean a drive formatted for Windriver is going to be of any use to anyone...
There are a couple of ways I can think of to reduce the amount of space available. As for physical size, there are several thumb drives available that are no longer than maybe 1/2-inch.

That was my thought exactly. You could either create a file container matching the size of the USB stick (or slightly less), or format the USB stick itself with VeraCrypt.
I still haven't migrated from TrueCrypt (VeraCrypt is pretty much its replacement), but I've used both approaches and they work equally well. The benefit to having a file container (rather than having the entire USB stick encrypted) is that you can create a backup just by copying a single file.
