When I first started smoking it was a packet of 5 Bristol then I graduated to 10 Gold Leaf as I began to earn more. Also smoked Players [no tips] and all the bits of shag [am I allowed to say that]? used to come out in your mouth, it was horrible. I remember Pasha cigarettes too Anne, they smelled like camel dung! When I felt really flush I bought Benson & Hedges if I was going to a dance or party. Does anyone remember Sobrani cigarettes? They were all pastel coloured and expensive, if I remember correctly.

First time I saw Sobrani cigs was in the 70's.My daughter was then in London, she smoked them.
They had gold tips. Ever so posh.
Then there was Cogent from the co-op when getting groceriesin the early 60's.
My husband always smoked Senior Service. I smoked B&H when having a refreshment. Had neither since Sept. 12th 2003.(Yup, gave up both on the same day, only smoked on having refreshment) Strange for such addictions, I miss neither.biggrin.gif

Remember Craven A during the ww2(no me, a wiz 2 wee.)

Remember the cocktail cigaretes, they were all different colours, very strong.
Consulate , they were menthol and I remember radio Luxembourg always used to advertise Peter Styversons.

Sobranie Cigarettes were either available as Sobranie Cocktail-(pastel coloured papers with a Gold tip-although they were actually plain cigarettes-the gold was just a band)-or Sobranie Black Russian-ubercool black cigarettes with a gold foil band -both made of Balkan tobacco and pretty pungent!
Pasha-were actually named "Yankee Pasha" and were Turkish cigarettes probably only ciggies freely available during the war as Turkey was neutral and could export them to the Uk without Adolf trying to sink them!-actually ok fags but stunk to high heaven!-favourite cry in the pictures-(smoking was allowed in the movies then) was "Och Who's smokin Bliddy Pasha!"-first fag I ever smoked-"Osborne navy cut" single fae wee shop in Glebe st-wiz 8-noo 56 and smokin 80 a day-cannae stoap it!
