Ten bob each e said.” Replied  Ayli. With a sly look, Aynuk  says,     “Doh tell anyone else, but there’s twenty thousand quid coming over no-man’s land!”

Elsie Mo goes PC: Castle Rock has rebranded one of its oldest beers in response to the debate on sexism in the brewing industry. Their original beer was called ‘LCMO’ (low colour maris otter) and is now their second biggest seller behind ‘Harvest Pale’. It originally sported a drawing of a blonde pin-up, then she had a boob job in 2007, and the stocking and suspenders appeared in 2014 inspired by the artwork on the fuselage of American bombers in WW2. Now Elsie is portrayed as the pilot of the plane, inspired by the many female ferry pilots who delivered the fighters and bombers to the squadrons (like Amy Johnson).
