    Its great how these Victorian era drinks have survived Dave.

    “...A yellow fog swirls past the window-pane
    As night descends upon this fabled street:
    A lonely hansom splashes through the rain,
    The ghostly gas lamps fail at twenty feet.
    Here, though the world explode, these two survive,
    And it is always eighteen ninety-five.”

                            My late father-in-law used to make his own version of Baileys Irish Cream with Camp coffee. He only drank tea or Young's beer himself, but all the females in the family thought his Irish Cream recipe was delicious.

                                Yep,it's a spats hook.

                                The Gordon Highlanders uniform was high upkeep.

                                Clean and shine the brass while ensuring every tiny bit of Brasso was removed internally ,spit and polish the boots,whiten the webbing, belt and spats and then ..... argh,button up the spats ..... without getting them dirty.

                                That little 4" hook was worth it's weight in gold.

                                Some early 20th century ones,think the roarin' twenties, did indeed have a shoe horn on the other larger end.
