Inside a starship, watching puny humans from afar
Morph lived in a microscope box.

I've had the exact same box, with complete microscope contents, since late parents bought it as a Xmas present, when I was around 8-9 years old!
Did you find Morph inside?
Inquiring minds need to know!

Quite, if Morph and Chas and The Very Small Things are not in it then it is clearly not "the exact same box".
Subsequent to telephone calls this evening, believe I may have tracked it down.

Seemingly now resides in a box, in a cupboard, at my son's.

On the case!

It may not be the actual, same box lived in by Morph and chums, however, wonder if I might be able to post a world's first photo of what theirs must have looked like before taking up residence.

Hopefully tomorrow... :bish:

i don't know if this is actually real?

Troops of the Royal Scots Regiment demonstrate their Grantapault in Belfast, Northern Ireland in July 1970. It is a huge catapult named after its inventor, regimental Sergeant Major Alex Grant, unseen. It is used to fire CS gas over the heads of advancing rioters into a head wind. Rioters are then (in theory) caught between the gas behind them and the advancing troops at their front. (AP Photo/Peter Kemp)​
What could possibly go wrong?

It's hard to believe it could be tested in a residential street, apparently facing houses.
Looks like a real Belfast location though as there's an RUC building behind the soldiers. You could find that on Google Maps if it's still standing.

The Cromer Light Foot were based in Belfast at the time.
