    I take my daughter every school holiday. I've been going there since
    I first used the bus on my own, around 11years old or something...

    I love the place. And if you saw the carved ivory roman gladiator figurine,
    it was dug up by the first CO of my battalion of research and donated to
    the nation in 1911
    :D

    Around 1900 the mark adorned lignum vitae internal thread bottle stoppers used by Walter H. Hicks, St Austell Brewery, Cornwall. Slightly before then it also appeared on aerated water bottle paper labels used by another company in the South of England (I'll dig out a photo) and also by one or two other long defunct UK brewers, once again on paper labels. Overseas Carlsberg also displayed it on the Elephant pillars at Castle Gate.

    Came across this when looking for grave in Byker/Heaton cemetery
    DSCF5477.JPG DSCF5476.JPG

    The symbols-- swastika = hitler -ss
    Star of David -- jewish = Holocaust

    As the date on the stone date was 1907 the meaning would have been totally differant but dont know what

    This Badge maybe of interest, issued by National Saving. found by myself whilst metal-detecting in Leeds.
    National Saving now have it in their museum.

    Here is a complete savings card, my grandfather's. Presumably he never cashed it in.

    Good one Adam!

    I was reminded of Swastika, Ontario's refusal to have their name changed to "Winston" during WW2.

    "To hell with Hitler, we came up with our name first"

    Unity Mitford was supposedly conceived in Swastika, Ontario. Not sure how true that is, but it seemed to have impressed the Nazis.

    Looks to me like the symbol used by that f---ing idiot Eugene Terreblanche and his neo-Nazi Afrikaner chums: If you google 'weestandsbeweging' you should see a ver similar symbol.

    Via the excellent [twitter]Chinaww2[/twitter] feed, I'd never heard of these chaps.

    (Though having said that, it's quite possible they've cropped up here before, and I've forgotten :unsure: )
