It wasn't me David - your faith in me can remain intact  - the nearest pub to us was 3 miles away - it was my ex

What was that horrid milk called which came with a metal top on, it was around, at about the time camp coffee was popular, another horrid drink...No...I don't think I'd want to go back to the good old days. 

  

Sterilised,,,,had a shelf life of about six months.

Few fridges in those days,  zoomer.

Tizer bottles with bulbous top halves,

Taking a pop-bottle to the corner shop to buy Vinegar loose from the barrel.

Spuds a shilling (5p) for 5lbs.

Rag & bone men giving day-old chickens in exchange for rags.

Sheep & pigs being unloaded outside the butchers, as you bought the meat inside. 

Taking pop-bottles back to the shop for the 2d deposit.
