    Just back from fetching these after taking a call last night, all live and in great condition, 4 more bangers for the collection plus one upgrade.
    In amongst these are a Guys Fireworks Magic Garden and a Dudley Fireworks Blue Devil..........
    It's still out there just waiting to be found......

    Just discovered there are 6 new additions to the collection as the Pains Cannon Crasher and the Standard Little Demon are different labels to the ones in my collection.
    Makes a nice change to be able to add a few bits to my collection..... first new banger additions of the year... the Wilders British Cannon has got be be one of the nicest looking bangers I've seen.

    I'm well chuffed with them, only a short drive away this time which was also nice, plus I swapped them for militaria and gained a new customer for the militaria business........... first time I've ever been to buy fireworks and come away with the gear plus more money than I went in with........ could get to like that !
    This really is a very unusual mix of vintage pyro with some very rare items and the condition of everything is perfect........... even the Standard box is a nice clean example............ very pleased with the 6 new additions to the collection.......
    Wonder what's next ?

    Thank you for those wonderful photographs. Fascinating, absolutely fascinating. The Blue Devil, never remember it or heard of, is it a hand held blue spray?

    Blue Devil by Dudley Fireworks ....... it has printed on it DO NOT HOLD IN HAND....... my guess is that this is a squib......... i have only one other item from them and that is a 2d Thunderflash banger.......
    Have an advert for Dudley fireworks from 1951 and again for 1952, then by 1953 they are gone
