Kampervan BS: You say tomato... (105* d) RE: BS: You say tomato... 24 Mar 16

Tin? Can? I started work at Smedley's in Spalding (UK)the early 1970's and one of the first things I was told was NEVER to use the word 'tin'.

I worked in a canning factory,putting food into cans.

A bit like the RAF never say 'plane', it's always 'aeroplane.'

Cans are sometimes tinned but they are always cans.
