Not everyone has a coffee table like mine
Not surprisingly I am one of those individuals that Andrew mentions in this posting, with my own collection of bric-a-brac with personal meaning. Included in this, I have quite a lot of memorablia from Budapest!
There you can spot all kinds of treasures, too many to name them all. There are some of those boot badges, some pens, some Socialistic money, Russian watches and old postcards.
Best of all there is my 'little black book', my Oklevel!
A group of taxi drivers and policemen from Brum did a sponsored drive from what was then the Birmingham Institute to the PAI in Budapest. I was working in the adults' department at the PAI at the time and we were all leaning out of the window when the convoy arrived. We were given handfuls of those lovely little boot badges, AA badges and black cabs to hand out to the clients and children.
