EF: Mag freebie

Hi Bunny. I don't know what you call them in USA; I know they are Wellington Boots in UK (presumably after the famous Duke of Wellington), we just call them gumboots here in NZ. I don't know the origin, but probably early settlers smeared their boots in gum to make them waterproof??
