    Kev...the green Romans bottom of the lh box seem to be wrapped for quick match ...the majority seems to be late 80’s /90’s...presume they are destined for the store?
     
  6. Look forward to seeing it all when you sort through it.
     
  7. Another great lot saved :)

    Some were destined for show displays but never got used hence quickmatch fuzes fitted and no labels......... as for the store........... most never make it that far but yes that's the general idea........

    Very nice find Kev. A few of those would look good in a certain £15 box!

    takes me back to the good old days when things were so simple, enjoyable, hassle free, no or few knob heads, ok the fireworks where smaller but o the joy of it all,
    looking at it all wish i could do it all again.:(
     
  16. Just buying a selection box and a few small rockets was a joy in childhood for me.Lining them up on my bedroom window sill every day in firing order and counting down those long days until the 5th.
    Maybe you would here a air bomb some nights in the distance or the lazy dribble of stars from a rocket which would have you rushing to the window. Happy days.
    Once my main pyro was bought any spare cash went on banger's little demons 321 zero's or maybe a air bomb repeater .If you had a £5 budget those days it was all good :)
