depth knowledge of ringing history, hence have not contributed to 
this debate, but it is a suitable subject for this list - more so, I 
would have thought, than for the ringing theory list.

Who was arguing?   I certainly wasn't intending to argue with my 
great friend Ed Martin.   I was simply conscious of some of the 
complaints we've had on this list in the past about things that were 
not devoted exclusively to the history of the bells themselves.

I shall now go back and re-read Ed's contributions, because I've 
rather lost the thread!   Something to do with my age probably 
the use of aluminium saucepans when I was a child :-)

Best wishes to all from Down Under,
