Haven't heard of Decca for, um, decades.

Bush is now an Argos own-brand, and Baird is now Asda, I think.

Decca Records is still in operation (mainly in the classical field) as a
subsidiary of Universal, and the Decca Radar business (bought by Racal
in the early 1980s) was in turn bought by a long-established American
aerospace company (Northrop-Grumman). The name is no longer used by them.
