What was the first firework you remember lighting? Mine was a tiny little fountain made by Wessex (possibly a Pains-Wessex) called a Feathery Fire. It cost 3p in 1976 and, incredibly, I bought it at the local shop despite being only 10 years old! I think the shop owner just wanted us shot from the shop. I remember it as a little blue, red and white thing, not the larger green and white version. (I'm after one, should anybody have one spare.) It would be interesting to know whether bangers feature high in the firsts?
