You're right, I was wrong, it wasnt White's fizzy drinks it was Corona, getting my fizzies all mixed up - signs of a befuddled brain :-) No winkle man, poor you, you dont know what you missed - fresh winkles, cockles, shrimps and mussels, yum yum, for tea on a Sunday. Or failing that, a trip down to Lee on Sea to sit on the sea wall eating them freshly gathered.

Well, I recall the Corona man (in Nottingham, early 1950s) bringing soft drinks. A knife grinder called once, in the late 1960s or possibly even 1970s (Kings Lynn, Norfolk). No winkle man though as far as I recall

For the strength of the hills we bless thee, Our God, our fathers' God.
Though hast made thy children mighty By the touch of the mountain sod.
Thou hast led thy chosen Israel To freedom's last abode
For the strength of the hills we bless thee Our God, our fathers God.
