I'd have guessed Cascamite and a quick Google seems to confirm that. Another source says it was actually Borden's One Shot but chemically that's the same stuff, a urea-formaldehyde resin glue derived from milk. So probably not too toxic, carcinogenic or environmentally hazardous.

My dad and I used it on our OKs back in the day, particularly for our regular 'wooden mast tuning' programmes, one week we'd plane some wood off the mast, a week later we'd glue some back on  Confused

Aerolite or Aerodux adhesives I would have thought. Aerolite was the dominant wooden boat adhesive in the 50s and 60s. Aerodux is superior but more expensive and coloured.

Definitely not Cascamite, itís well known to last only about 25 years.

It was a formaldehyde glue, Phenol, I believe, though memory is weak. Whatever cascophen isn't, which may sound odd. I'll see if sleeping on it helps.

Continued - it was a resorcinol formaldehyde glue. The closest available to cold cure today is cascophen, but the hot cure glue was a little different. I used to know the name.

Now that's sounding more COSHH challenging.
I know Phenolic resin from the 80's was pretty evil stuff, commonly used on London underground mouldings and other flame retardant applications.

TBH, I'd forgotten about Aerolite 306, but that was what we use on the boats (we did use cascomite for other projects at home). But there are several references on the web to Fairey's using Cascomite or Borden 'One Shot' and I didn't find any referring to them using Aerolite...
