    in amongst the last few bits from the barn there was this Brocks labelled item, from around 1974 -75 when they tried running a range of Chinese items in their boxes

  8. I remember those early Brocks Chinese fireworks very well, i can still remember where i got them from, a shop that is now long gone, i bought a big selection box and the effects then were certainly a novelty, first time i had ever seen a whistling rocket!, most of these were later sold by Esco.

  17. These are old shell shipping containers aren't they? Has one ever been found still containing the fireworks?
  18. Escht

    Yes ammo containers,
    I've not heard of one being found with fireworks still in them......... very unlikely as at the time they would have been very hard to obtain and I can't imagine anyone who having managed to get one wouldn't let them off...........
