Silacene 12

Found by Eddie McLean in the Kirkintilloch, Glasgow area.

(Note – SBH – This trade name appears to be English and presumably manufactured by Thomas Gray in England, however, due to its find location I have created a page for it meantime in case there is indeed a Scottish connection that I am as yet, not aware of. Any information will be gratefully received).
