You learn something every day. I think the workers were told it was gold to impress them, the respondents that gave the evidence I have seen certainly didn't know it was gilded. Thanks for that and the link.
That firm was news to me as well Wendy!
So the hut is in the mountains somewhere... Scandinavia?

Tizer's shed. When I was a kid we had a world Atlas with all the nations flags in the front pages. The challenge between myself and older brother was to draw the flag of the named country. If this is a national flag hanging on the wall its reminiscent of a old Hungarian flag. This could then be a typical country dwelling house?

Not Scandinavia or Hungary but keep thinking high latitudes and cold. Clue: it's a designated Historic Site.

Kev got it right with his `British Antarctic Survey heritage site'. It dates from 1975 but the huts began at the end of WW2 as part of Operation Tabarin. This one is the Damoy Hut at Wiencke Island, reached by aeroplane from the Falklands to Rothera Research Station, Rothera Point, Adelaide Island. There's plenty of information on this Geodigest web page if you scroll down about a third of the way and look out for the photos. Geodigest

Rothera Research Station details are here: Rothera
and Operation Tabarin here: Tabarin

It could be colder in Barlick than there this morning! We have -8C and wind chill. Try this one.

It's a trade mark of course but who used it?

It was a hard one. Here's the answer, it was the trademark of the Budenberg Gauge Company of Broadheath near Altrincham in Cheshire. Their pressure gauges couldn't be bettered and they were very good to me when I was doing Ellenroad, they refurbished all my gauges free of charge.
Next one?

All good suggestions but wrong. It's one of those annoying ones that are impossible if you don't know so I shall knock it on the head. It's the trademark of Hopkinsons of Huddersfield who made the best boiler fittings obtainable. (LINK)
