      Re: Mail order Catalogues

      My mother was an agent for the John England catalogue - she used to say how she would get commission on purchases because she was an agent. We had a customer who lived a couple of streets away who used to buy all her furniture from that catalogue.

      I remember those brown or black plastic wallets that contained payment cards and books and things.

      Victor Lewis-Smith mentioned John England in his Daily Mirror Saturday columns in the late 1990s.

      And I once misheard John Inman's name as John England. True.
      Telling it almost exactly like it was so many years later - and proud of doing so!

          Nowadays mail order catalogues are few & far between as most shops have catalogues on line

          Do you really believe the other side without provocation would launch so many ICBM's, subs and ships knowing that we would have no option to launch as well? It would break our MAD Treaty (Mutually Assured Destruction) not to mention the end of the world as we know it.

            I actually thought that Littlewoods would have gone under when their High Street shops closed - I assume that it was a different division of the company.

              Really? What about the firearms license? Did you have to send them a Xerox of the license before they would sell you one?

                Talking of mail order catalogues there was a joke about Littlewoods:

                A woman answers the door to find a guy on the doorstep.

                "Hello Madam I'm from Littlewoods"

                "What? Have I won?"

                "No your son has been arrested for shoplifting"
