|Pan Yan Pickle was created by the
Scottish firm Maconochies in 1907, in their factory in
east London's Isle of Dogs. It quickly became a
household favourite and was part of an era of food

1903 because Garton claimed to have heard that it was

Parliament. In the 1970s HP Sauce became known as
"Wilson's Gravy" after Harold Wilson, the Labour Prime
Minister, whose wife, Mary, in an interview to the

he will drown everything with HP Sauce".
