'cause they define a Home as where the tenor is in
Nths place at the lead end, a Wrong as where the tenor
is in (N-1)ths place, and a Middle as (N-2)ths place.
Which sort of makes sense.

The problem is that on any even number of bells a bob
W rotates 235, whereas a M affects 246. For PB7
labelled as in the diary then it's the wrong way
round, which is very confusing.
