    smoke float and indicator

    if nothing else, they're colourful - which is why I have them in my collection! Am I the only one who likes these things? They are, of course, empty of their smoke/flame/illuminating contents.

    I like them too, but tend to be in worse condition after floating about a bit.
    Only once they've been declared inert of course!.

    But of course....there is nothing more embarrassing than have a search rescue sea king hovering over your house when one has tried one out in the fish pond in your garden...even more so when you live nowhere near the sea!

    I'm not alone then! As a child they often washed up on the beaches so when the chance to get a couple that hadn't been swimming I jumped at it

    oh I can think of a lot of things more embarrassing than having a helicopter hovering over the house!
