Two Bongs from a Gong

Two moderately loud bongs from a dinner gong, circa 1926, thought to be part of a collection obtained from Longleat in the early eighties.

£80 for the pair, but will consider splitting


Echo of a distant volley, American Civil War

Although not the original sound, this excellent replica is a must for collectors of military memorabilia. Still in its original box.

£40 ono


Platform announcement, Glasgow Central, Late fifties

Some damage to the final sentence and slurring of some sibilants but otherwise in excellent condition. The section mentioning the buffet car is particularly interesting.

The word 'tangerine' spoken slowly in a North Country accent

£400
