Serious question Philip; since that bob appears to just swap over two 
bells, should it not be called a Single? Simple explanation of the why's 
and wherefore's, if any, would be appreciated. Or have I missed 
something? Busy doing other stuff so haven't written out any figures. 
(In many ways of course, I suppose it doesn't matter what we call it; 
but then again....).
