    I certainly remember buses like that, although in Wales we only had single deckers like the one behind. Only two buses a day, although the trains ran hourly. If the engine driver saw you running up the road towards the station he would always wait for you. Dandelion days indeed.

    The top logo was for "utility" products introduced 1941 as a war economy measure; ideally using as few "strategic" materials and manufacturing facilities as possible.
    Cheers MIKE.

    I have to admit that although the logo rang a few bells I could not remember what it was. I do remember rationing and free orange juice for youngsters. The area I lived in in Wales was dry. That is nothing, and I mean nothing apart from chapels and churches were open on a Sunday. Unless you were local and knew which back doors to go to you could not buy anything. Even sailing was banned and the putting green was padlocked. It was very peaceful, but a bit too peaceful.

    regards

    Sorry Mike but you loose by default so you cannot claim either prize
    I realise this will be devastating news but your question would have been:
    What is the title of this tune
    Who is the Artist,
    open to anyone.

    Not a good choice Colin, Media player displays title and artists (Obviously embedded in the MP3 file)
    Cheers MIKE.

    Yes, reminiscent in places of the Hot Club de France.
    Cheers MIKE.

    The Dutch swing collage is still going strong. Of course not all the original players, I saw them a few weeks ago.

    Last time I saw them was in Bristol, early '90's with the Lindy hoppers dance group.
    Cheers MIKE.

    The great comfort of turning 49 years is the realisation that you are now too old to die young.
