  1. Hi all.
    I think I have found G Allinson. My uncle worked a lot in inskip.
    Back in the day the derby arms pub was called the motoring museum. Very famous had a car on the roof,
    George Allinson owned it.

    if the link doesn’t work google:: the derby arms motoring museum. It’s a film..
    But no fireworks, I’m sure it will have something to do with this

  2. From the film, it seems likely that I was correct in surmising that these items were for some sort of SFX.

    Perhaps the fountains were attached to the rear of a car, as happens nowadays with the Cookham Gravity Grand Prix. I supply them with various pyro to attach to the rear of their go-carts:-

  3. Yep I think you maybe right, I need to know if his middle name was d
    But think I’m on the right track. I’m hoping to find someone that remembers the pub.
    I do remember the car on the top but I was pre 10 lol
