I have an african connection. There is still a Bata factory in Durban and I'm sure I saw one in Maun in Botswana. West Cumbria = Southern Africa??

That heliocopter that flies over our house twice a day carris the big chief of the 'fish factory' winging in from the North East to make sure that the ex Bata prawns are hard at work and, no doubt, to take a fish head or two home for his dinner. Cynical? not me.
