Dr William Poole, Fellow of New College, Oxford, has come upon some
material about Elias Ashmole, the founder of the Ashmolean Museum in
Oxford, and Lichfield bells.  He has written a short article on the
subject (which includes a reference to the band of "Loyal Youths" which
rang there, in a uniform of a flannel waistcoat edged with black
buttons, and a black silk cap, though whether they wore the cap when
ringing is not revealed).

The article can be found at <>.
Any comments would, I know, be gratefully received and could be sent to
me for transmission to Will.
