Another heritage colour

      The entire gable end of an old shed or garage painted in a new hue, well painted quite some time ago as it happens but without even a hint of Norfolk Bog Door Blue. The colour looks like Army Surplus from the North African campaign in World War 2 and you have to admit that it does look as if the last time the wood saw fresh paint it was the 1940's.
      It does remind us of one thing though and that was those young lads at infant school who always had a green or a brownish cream yo-yo hanging out of their noses that they tried to waterproof their sleeve with.
      No tissues in those days.
      So in honour of that memory from the fifties and Beechwood Infant School we'll give it the Norfolk Heritage Colour name of Norfolk Brown Bogie.


  1. Reminds me of an Airfix colour - ever thought of being a Farrow & Ball consultant John? Never mind about Elephants Breath, you could have Terriers Fart? I'll get my coat....ttfn Dickie

  2. Yes, that would go well on a desert campaign 1:72 Hurricane. . These days the military seem to pink up their desert buff
