I said: "Isn't this discussion about 'Real' Double Norwich - this had quite
a vogue some years ago?"

RAS asked: "What does "Real" mean in this context? Simply that the leads
remain double?"

GAAT said: "I've always understood "Real" to mean calls at the lead-end
and/or the half-lead in a double method. Is there another meaning, then?"

I've always been led to believe RAS's idea but GAAT could be correct

The 1992 Compositions Index lists six 'real' compositions of Double
Grandsire Triples (Perrins - '92), DNCB (Butters - '79), Bristol
(Critchley - '79), Cambridge (Pitman - '60), Double Glasgow (Baldwin - '69)
and Superlative (Worsley - '66). Perhaps someone could look these up and
tell us.
