It would be interesting to know how close to true-harmonic tuning the Warner
bells are, assuming that they have not been retuned subsequently.
Mangotsfield does not encourage (though Millom does).  I agree with Chris
Pickford that one would expect 1921 to be the actual casting date, simply
because no other Warner bells are known dated as late as 1922.  But very
early 1922 might be a possibility, i.e. their very last casting?
