The horrible taste of many of the medicines we were forced to take. It seemed to me that the rule was the worse it tasted, the more effective! High on this list was Easton's Syrup, a 'tonic' we were given in the Spring and Brimstone and Treacle which 'thinned' the blood, allegedly a good thing! As soon as you got an itchy heat spot out it came. Funny thing is I haven't seen a heat spot for years..... I wonder if they were flea bites.......
