Andrew Sibson asked for an extension of Nelson TB Minor. Richard Smith
pointed out that there is no valid extension, which is, of course, correct.

In fact, Richard's list gives two formulaic extensions. One  is 'static'
above and only goes to eight: 5BC/2EF: &-5-1-25-1-2-1-2-5,1. The other is a
simple static-below extension, just repeating the last two elements of the
place notation and is indefinite at all stages: 3DE/5FG:
&-3-1-2-1-2-3-2-3,1. This
extension is, of course, not allowed as Nelson TB Major (etc), being of the
Delight class. It can be called Nelson Delight, tho'. (As far as I can see,
all this sequence of methods remain unrung).

This method is of group 'j' and has BDa falseness.

It has the advantage of comparative simplicity which is important for a
method designed for a particular national celebration.

Best wishes
