Just a note of caution to anyone buying what McGahey's of Exeter are selling as "Digger Flake"; After hearing that they sold it, I went in there a while ago to get some for a 79 year-old friend of mine who used to smoke Digger as a younger man. The lady in the shop said it was "in the basement". (This is not uncommon as much of their stock is kept in the basement). However, while she was down there she radioed up to her colleague in the shop and asked her to pass her down a pack of something else (I couldn't see if it was Ogden's Walnut Flake or Player's Navy Cut Flake, but I suspect the former), then came up with the alleged "Digger Flake" in a loose package. When I challenged her about it she eventually mumbled something about it being the same thing. So, living nearby as I do, I can tell you that if you order Digger Flake from McGahey's of Exeter, you're actually getting another regular OTC instead....
