    Ha haaa..I've got one of those Brocks presentation booklets...Alan Bennett sent it to me when my mum was in contact with Brocks asking what to do about her son's (Me!) 'atomic' mixings....Never ever seen another.
    I have collected most of the fireworks in there...very gratifying to see another....
  2. Beautiful artwork in the Brocks booklet. Thanks for showing. I wonder what Radio and Gloria stars were back in the day?

    I don't recall ever seeing a box like this before, stapled end flaps and black interior to lid and base. Box is approx. 34cm x 13cm x 5cm...........

    Rare..interesting..pity it's been so scribbled over...and never seen a black interior before..actually the childish scribbles rather add to know ....association with childhood etc etc...

    Always the way when something unusual turns up,.......... I wouldn't go for something this scribbled on but having not seen one before seemed daft not to buy it....... the person who invents a pen to erase biro ink without damaging everything else will be a hero.

    Nice little find from the weekend, 2 packs in box are original contents, 6d pack was also in the box but not original to it.
    These boxes are quite hard to find.

    How many Diamond suns mate ?
  14. Several German rockets there, i have quite a few myself, i remember those re-loadable shells too, still got a couple here, some good stuff there and proves again it's still out there!, just noticed two Mother of Thunder there too, one of the loudest air bomb cakes there was and really slow fused, didn't think i'd see one again let alone two!, definitely a collector's item, wish i had bought more of them when they were on sale.

  16. Aaah god, those 3d Cannons trip me back in time. Most of the bad lads in my area had them in the run up to GFN.

    It could be a rose tinted memory, but I remember those buggers being LOUD!!! :cool:

    Here it is as seen on a 1939 pricelist., looks like they were going through their blue and red phase looking at the other bits on there..
