    Fond memories of all of these. Takes me right back to 1997-1999 when I started UKFR. Some photos from that time:

    This one deposited burning shells on the conservatory roof and I can still remember the almighty row it caused with the ex, even 15 years later (it was her house mind you and I did nearly burn it down):

    Mine of Serpents produced my first ever fireworks photo, of a consumer item, crap by today's standards but back in those days we used actual film and had to get the photos developed:

    Great photos Pete, I remember they were the ones to have at the time, Green bamboo and hale bopp were great cakes and guessing some of the first on the scene. How times have changed. Remember the whoppa rockets too

  16. Does anyone have a bigger box than leopard? I've never seen one since the late 90s. There was a lion box in a cabinet at the local newsagents several years running. Used to drool over it in my school lunch break!
     
  17. i am sure there is a bigger box at the bottom of that pile will have a look tomorrow:)
