Hi Sophie

As I only collect photos from sources that do not claim copyright issues as far as I know therefore as far as I am concerned there is no issue, but I can never be sure of the copyright position of any of them. I always post images under the proviso that on proof of a copyright issue I will remove it without hesitation. In your case published to a magazine that would be hard to do, so its up to yo if you use it or nor but being as the image is not mine you will see its not my place to give permission.
Thanks Phil, yes, we'll give that some thought. Do you happen to recall where you sourced this particular photo from? Thanks

Hi, all. My first post. I'm here because I just dug this beggar up in my garden in Redditch, and I'd never heard of them. Not really surprising, if they stopped trading about 20 years before I was born!

This one has a chip in the lip and I'm a bit annoyed about it, because I think I put it there with my shovel.

Coincidentally, I notice the original poster had lived on Birchfield Road. I'm just of Birchfield Road, but a different one, some 17 miles South of you!

Hi and welcome to the forum. An intersting bottle. There are collectors of glass bottles but I have no idea what this one might be worth.
I have come across this in a Google search

Hehe. I'm not that bothered about value. It's got its value to me now!
(I've seen a good one go for £14 on eBay!)
Why could I not dig up a classic car or a full 50 year old whisky barrel?

Hi Annekh and welcome. I am sure there will be someone on the forum who remembers your dad. I remember a Carol Dunn from school.

Welcome annekh. I’ve moved your post to this specific thread about Wacaden, There may be earlier posts of interest. Post #16 gives a list of the depots in 1940. Viv.
