Winter warmers, bull roarers and throwing arrows.
Who are you calling pedantic? I resemble that remark!

He had some decent ones... some scheisse too, but always used to have a look and usually bought one!

I heard he did the same at other clubs too when Stags weren't playing.

I’m sure he told me he lived somewhere in South Yorkshire when I purchased some badges from him whilst in a pub in town appx 3 to 4 yrs ago

I switched from the lyrics of Pete Shelley of the Buzzcocks (B Side of Orgasm Addict November 1977) to Roger Waters and Pink Floyd (1979).

Spangles was a brand of boiled sweets, manufactured by Mars Ltd in the United Kingdom from 1950 to the early eighties. They were bought in a paper tube with individual sweets cellophane wrapped. ... Spangles were discontinued in the early eighties but made a comeback in 1994 but unfortunately are not manufactured today.

Thanks SFL....Uncle Bruno used to suck them underground to break up the dust in his throat and keep his spit going as I recall him saying.......and there were Old Fashioned Spangles.......which were discontinued before the traditional Spangles I'm assuming
