Thought a shot of the interior of a "Rommelkiste" might be interesting.

Xavier - I'd say it's Gordons Dry Gin,London, old chap, London. Shows these guys had their priorities right. AND were thoughtful enough to put a padlock on such treasures.Nice picture and confirming the bit about 'one' tells more than a 1000 words....
