Hi frank
Thankyou for the info i thought it was most likely scottish but the label was a head scratcher
If you dont mind me asking frank was that label used just for that weight or was the label added by a third party?
Regards
Joe

Does look like a pre 1978 PP1, not a strathearn......

Would think the label is a retailer, but can't find them on google.  It certainly isn't the maker!
