    “...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.”

        Young's make a nice chocolate stout. I'm not generally in favour of adulterating stout with needless flavours, but it's a well done brew.

          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.
          Very interesting love knowledge and facts of this sort bravo!!

            My Great Grandad was a Seaforth Highlander. Served at the battle of Loos. They captured a hill but got overran when the Germans pushed back. Spent the war in Chemnitz.

                Robert Clarke, a station master from Forres. My old man has his medals, and a letter from the king thanking him for his role in the camp. There's a few photo's, some before the war, some in the camp and a great one with a Belgian band about to board a train. Not sure if that's before or after. There's a photo of a Canadian guy on a horse too, guess he was in the camp with him. My grandmother, Roberts son, has photos taken by her brother in WW2, dead Chinese civilians. I'll wager they've never been published. We found them when we cleared out stuff when she had to go into a home. Grim reality.

                    I'm a massive plane nerd, WW2 in particular. My partner's grandfather was a pilot in WW2, he was shot down in a two seater and his crew mate died. He never spoke about it so we don't know much, but it was early in the war so maybe a Battle or a Defiant?

                    For some proper history, my good friend of many years is Polish, and his families war stories are eye opening.

                        Massively off topic. I did a Junker's 87 Stuka in 1:48 scale which I was particularly proud of, but my BF 108 Condor Legion was my favourite, another 1:48 scale, I used cigarette ash to get the weathering on the guns. I did a Spitfire BTK that was hard work, but having a child, they got broke. I was working on a Handley Page Heyford, but that also got sidelined. Never mind, I'll get back to it eventually.

                              Yes, I did notice the Ordinary doesn't taste like it used to when I lived near the Wandsworth Brewery, Dupin. I thought it was because I'm now in Devon, or my taste buds are not what they were.

                              The Pride of Spitalfields did a nice pint of Fuller's London Pride when I used to drink there.

                              My current beer tipple of choice is a pilsner called Offshore, by Sharp's.

                                The Pride of Spitalfields: lovely pub. Alas, it has a high TripAdvisor rating so it can be difficult to get a pint at all.
                                Despite its name I think it is really in a place called Whitechapel. Nothing much ever happened there: move along.
