    No there not they just said Standard ground mine no hummer/airbomb/star shell.

    These had all three in one firework.

  11. The blue Ground Mine shown in the 1983 picture was sold in the shops. It contained a bit of everything - hummers, whistles, air bombs and star shells. The items posted by TonyB were usually supplied in display packs sold to the public. I remember my local Scouts display using them.

    Thanks that explains the difference.
  13. I still have a blue one as shown in the top picture,the later ones had different designs and were clearly marked with the effect,i have one of the Double Air Bomb ones here too.
  14. I remember buying a double air bomb one from a newsagents when I was 18. The effect wasn't that great I seem to recall!
