    ...sorry...pressed SEND too early......a nice collection too with quite a mix of services in there......the way you staged the pic looks like they're all escaping out of the house! Over the years I've seen well over a thousand variants and see a new one every week......so you've at least got another 952 to go!...that's either disheartening or exciting depending on how you look at it.

    Keep 'em coming!!

    Jerry...another nice lid...nice to see a Rubery POLICE one as a lot were Harrisons ....the Specials had some "rules" about their markings but in reality the markings are all over the place....you'd've thought that if anyone was consistent, structured, organised etc it'd be the rozzers but no....they appear to have gone to the same where-shall-we-stick-this school!

    'nice sterile pics too (not patronising!)

    What are these then?

    Early black rimless BMB on the bottom....and a Sankey 1938 whitey on top (this has a '39 dated BH&G Ltd liner)....both 100%....but WTF does CWD stand for??

    When I got the black one nearly 30 years ago I was told "Chemical Weapons Dump".....yeah, rrrrrright. I have seen one other black one like this....so there's three out there....well, two are in here...if you know what I mean.
