Didn't know about that one. Bradasol's were popular because Ciber Geigy were based in Horsham, must have bought a job lot of them.

Balmosa was probably Tommy Scott's era rather than Hoskins so before your time. It was the cure -it-all of the sixties at CH!

I remember Hoskins getting the whole school to have flu jabs as part of his "research".

I also seem to remember getting paid for it, a fiver or so.

Well known Politician, (Use your imagination) in a Restaurant -- a pretty waitress passes "Hey Miss -- can I have a Quickie ?"
She turns and slaps his face ! One of his aides whispers " No sir, it's pronounced Quiche !"
