Bob Course of St Simon's Triples: 








The bob course of Plain Bob Triples has 4 leads. You can convert the
above to a much longer touch of PB Triples by ringing the exact same
bobbed leads, but touches so converted are not necessarily true. 

Bob courses of St. Simon's can be linked together with singles. This
produces a touch with no plain leads, only singles and bobs. This is not
possible for PB Triples, because obviously 2 and 3 would be stuck in
those two place bells. 

 It is the case that any composition that is true to St. Simons is also
true rung with bob courses ie call Bob for Plain. Plain for Bob and Single
for Single.

 I don't see how that can be true.
 If you have a true touch of either method it can be rewritten by
 reading the HAND STROKE treble leads of the one method and following
 them IN REVERSE ORDER enter the calls accordingly to produce the
 calling for the other method

 NB that what in one method occurs as say
 1 7 0 0 0 0 0 at hand
 1 0 7 0 0 0 0 at back
 in the other will be
 1 0 7 0 0 0 0 at hand
 1 7 0 0 0 0 0 at back
