    So my usual sunday morning is always started by been waken up by some gypo shouting ragbone on his megaphone.

    ARGHHH but this morning the same gypo instead had the tune to step toe and sons blarting out his megaphone. Quality :p

    Any of your rag and bone men do the same?

    They're everywhere, I see them all the time. Although they rarely shout anything these days. Just drive past houses slowly looking for scrap metal they can nick when it goes dark.

    We have a guy who drives a small truck looking for old fridges and the like. I suppose he is a modern day version of Steptoe & Son.

    A few claymores would have done the same thing, and be harder to steal. :p

    I'll try and record them next time they come around (probably tomorrow) and see if anyone can decipher what they shout.
