Briggy you can still get the rum one, I of course am particular to it.
Does anyone remember the Nux bar in the '70's bit like picnic?
And I had an Afro whilst in the Andrew. Cut hair short and tight perm. Once ashore into the bog at the traff, home and use the Afro comb.
It kept the Patrol at bay as they were never certain. :roll:
I was kinda young (born in 73) but some of memories of life in Stonehouse in the 70s:-
White dog shit
Playing kiss-chase in the yards
"Nutty" bars (fudge covered in peanuts)
Pacers - "now with stripes"
KP Outer Spacers
People with one big shoe (why where there so many people with one leg slighter longer than the other?)
Finding johnny-bag rings and posting them through letter boxes
Finding porn in bushes
Drunken sailors in my flat on a Saturday afternoon after the Queens Arms kicked out
Sailing out with the Eagle to the breakers on a PAS boat when I was 5 (anchor-faced little cnut I was)
Buying fags for my mum - "20 Peter Stuyvesant, mister"
Fighting with the Smithy kids
Being slightly scared of the man in Flat 59G - definately a paedo in todays money
Desperately wanting a Chopper but getting a Strika instead
