Not having a look at that, answeronapostcard, I believe they used to sting like Iodene.

no pain, no gain
Quote: what were those razors, the make that is, they were stored in a metal box, and you pushed them back and forward every time you were about to use it, thereby sharpening the blade.
I think you mean the Rolls Razor
My dad had one, he said it was useless, "like shaving with a bread knife"
Yes, that was the razor, RichardNOO, my uncle had one, and I was fascinated by it when he was 'sharpening' it.
My barbour still uses a straight razor for the neck.
Yes, I know what you mean, StrayCat, I have a Barber coat, waxed, of course, for when I go out in the inclement weather.[barbour/Barber - I don't take the fence, nor even the front gate.)
I can remember when barbour sold heavy duty outcoors clothing in a sort of dark green colour
Can't afford Barbour. But remember in the 1950s when duffle coats were all the rage for teenagers for school, and haversacks for carrying books etc. Got the latter from Army and Navy Stores. Mind I am too young to have experienced those personally, (too young) seen photos of older relatives.
so much stuff was army surplus.
even my parents were army surplus.
What about the hand knitted balaclavas that were raggy at the bottom of the mouth opening where you constantly chewed on them.
I remember as a young lad, going 'scrumping', through a barbed wire fence, across a bit of waste land and into the bottom of a garden where there was an apple tree.
We were disturbed when the woman of the house came down the garden and shouted at us.
We fled for our lives, back across the wasteland and I was in such a hurry to escape, I dived through the barbed wire fence. It snagged my pale blue jeans (10 inch bottoms) on the thigh and they tore completely around so that the leg of the jeans draped around my ankle.
When I got in, my Mother said " what the hell have you done". I looked down as if seeing the destroyed jeans for the first time and said "Oh, I hadn't noticed".
Never could understand why she didn't believe me.
Later in life I have given Ashley Young diving and acting lessons - and he's no better at it than I was.
Quote: I remember as a young lad, going 'scrumping',
Me too, but I think nowadays it would be classified as antisocial behaviour. Then it was seen as a clip around the ear and dont let me see you here again.
??? Who the fecks Ashley Young? ???????????????????????????????????????
I wondered about that as well..........
According to Wiki......Ashley Simon Young (born 9 July 1985) is an English footballer who plays as a
winger for Manchester United and the English national team.
So now we both know
