Older descriptions have a lot to recommend them. They would help to avoid the “Send three and four pence, we are going to a dance” type of communication error. In these days of combined forces, perhaps we should return to calling them “Oilers”. On the other hand maybe for the uninformed, the symbol would then resemble an oil can (or oil well). :mrgreen:
