    Your Lingham plate could be an interesting conversation piece as the words Linghan and Lingam refer to the male organ of generation.

    I can't imagine that when Safes Ltd decided on this name that they were being cocky, but more likely they wanted to associate the strength of their safe with Lignum Vitae, the strongest of hardwoods.
    I dunno about that Safeman ! Sounds like a load of old balls to me ! (Boom boom)

    Hi all, Iíve just acquired another version of this plaque. Itís the same as the one I posted a picture of attached to the red safe last week. Itís of far better quality than the original one that I started this post with. It hasnít been cleaned and retains all its original patina IMHO. Thanks men.

    It's not the same - it is a much more unusual one.

    Sorry, not very good at explaining myself regrettably. I meant this latest plaque is the same as the one on the red safe picture I posted last week and not the original plaque that started the debate. Youíll have to excuse me because I take a fair amount of medication for pain so I can quite easily confuse myself along with anyone else who listens to my ramblings 🙃
