Ah! The good old days before even  humble squaddies had civvy employed to polish and scrub  !   But why did the management always confuse us by calling "Brasso"   "Bluebell " ?    And can anyone else remember how an ironing burn on a BD jacket could be removed by rubbing it over with a two bob piece or a half dollar if you were rich enough to have one ?



We lived in fear of Vaseline. I remember the two bob trick, who thought of that?

"Bluebell" and "Brasso" were two different brands. We never felt that "Bluebell" was as good, (a bit like the relative merits of "Cherry blossom" and "Kiwi" boot polish).
I tried rubbing a burn off with a coin, alas to no avail.
