Golly is also still used to describe members of the EW fraternity of the Royal Navy (albeit in a very unofficial way these days).Errrm, careful there, you are not allowed to use the word "Golly" in any sentence that even obliquely refers to non-honky peoples.
Do a google of "Robertsons Golly" then look at the images and you will see why. Robertsons is a jam and marmalade maker who used the Golly as their logo until it became inappropriate not to any more. There used to be a Golly logo on the label of the preserves jar, if you collected a certain number you could send them in and receive an enamel Golly badge in exchange.
Note: The term "Golly" was also used by military personnel in parts of the middle east in the late 50's and through the 60's when referring to the local indigenous population.
You will occasionally see one sporting a miniature old style Robinson’s ‘Golly’ badge - the real reason for this is lost in the midsts of time (google throws up a few different reasons).
Some of the older buggers get very animated about this subject - sorry for thread drift.
