Many thanks - this would explain why our Tower Captain was told that
there was no trace of them in the Peterborough Diocesan Guild peal

It's very likely there is a printed peal board for this in the tower -
I shall have to check on Sunday. They used to hang on the wall but the
wires became unsafe and now they are in a pile waiting to be rehung! R
Paul was killed in the 2nd WW. Dudley Paul still lived in Chatteris
when I moved there in 1986 and was working as a shoe repairer and was
a real 'character'- the shop was an Aladin's cave of old tools and
shoes. (It's now an undertakers) I was always going to get him to tell
me about his memories of the old Chatteris ringers (the local band was
a good one) but sadly he died before I got round to it. Moral - don't
put off doing things like this! The last peal by an all local band was
in the mid 1960s but hopefully we will ring one this year.
