Hello Mike, did Fred have Flag sauce in his cafe ?
Don't think they will, same as Ansells it never was the same when the brewery was demolished. All to do with the water from the wells below. My uncle Norman worked for hp most of his working life and my husband had the worst job in Brum [a brewer and SAMPLER at Ansells]. Jean.
I remember flag sauce and the chop sauce, the flag ketchup was fantastic though I never knew it was made in brum, but when ever we went camping with scouts the old scout master always had the flag sauce for the bacon and eggs.
Another brown sauce I had forgotten turned up on my table as a surprise birthday present from one of my sons - a bottle of OK Sauce. I hadn't seen this one for years but turns out Colmans Mustard still make it for the Chinese market! The label is partly printed in Chinese and it's on sale at Wing Yips in Nechells where my son got it while looking round there. Not the same as Flag, as it is much fruitier, but is a nice tasty blast from the past in a cheese sandwich.
