  3. Love it mate, thanks for the pics, what I would give for that lot you lucky bugger lol.
  4. That salvo is very much like the Chinese cakes today, looking at that it's just a shame standard couldn't have made it through making stuff to match what we are getting from China only with good old UK recipes with flash powder used today, might have even been better because this crackling stuff drives me bloody mad, nearly every firework today is bloody snap crackle and pop.
  5. would you give your right arm jamie ? lol
  6. Certainly would Steve, that stuff is the crown jewels for me.
  7. Fantastic collection and great photos. Thanks for posting.

  10. Yes definitely, much more fun and excitement and not every firework doing the same thing like today or more like the exact same fireworks relabeled and rebranded under a different company, when we had UK fireworks manufacturers such as standard everything had its own characteristics and stood out, not like what we've got today.

  11. It was in effect a six shot cake. The stake went down the centre tube. The construction was similar to Dizzle Dazzle Bang (remember those from the eighties?), which was, sort of, a three shot cake.
  12. Thanks for that, very interesting, that what I love about this forum, I remember collecting the spent batteries up after GFN in the eighties as a youngster, never saw what they did unfortunately as I was too young and couldn't afford them and my parents wouldn't spend a lot on fireworks, same with the big rockets, never saw them but heard plenty about them on the forum from others who actually fired them, the sky rockets I had in the 80s were those size 3 and 4 dome cap ones, loved them, remember the unique swoosh they gave, not much in the way of payload but we're my favourite as a youngster.
