Thanks. Potentially useful, but as you suggest a little
simple for this particular requirement. There is a similar
1568 with slightly bizarre part ends in the diary attributed
to you and Hull: BFFBLLG/ = 5786342. Possibly those part
ends have some charm, but at present it eludes me.

Thanks. They're certainly useful, and I may well be
arranging some quarters along these lines this year. But
how much merit do they have other than as practices for a
peal of Chandlers?

That's certainly of interest. By choice I'd have perhaps
had a few more standard / semistandard methods, but there's
some variety in the methods chosen.
