    Not entirely confident but I’ll take a stab at
    1c; 2d; 3b; 4a; 5e…

    Right, and not even loking at the books…

    I’m sure silver paper was one of the first, for guide dogs. The 3Bs is fairly obvious. Pre-decimal coins could be no later than 1976. Then I’m pretty sure Lend An Ear was scrap metal for no other reason than the Key Note Appeal, for the same cause, was scrap metal and so they wouldn’t have to change any of the scripts.

    So that’s 1e, 2c, 3b, 4a, 5d.

    Both of you were almost right. The answers are: 1 = c; 2 = e; 3 = b; 4 = a; 5 = d.
