I've got Legrand plugs in Green (with sleeved pins), Yellow (unsleeved pins, came fitted to a Lava Lamp), and a scruffy Grey example (again with sleeved pins, on a welder. The trend for coloured plugs is briefly mentioned in this article on the Woolworths Electrical Counter. http://www.woolworthsmuseum.co.uk/hg-leadinglights.htm. Woolworths Electrical accesories would be worth a thread on their own, since I'm sure many of us over a certain age remember childhood visits to Woolies and having to be dragged away from the Electrical Counter by parents, or being bought plugs etc, by Grandparents.
