Phil -- you were right about Paul Graupner. We've been in contact with him
today and he confirmed it's him.  He doesn't have a record of the method
they rang, but is going to get us an email address for Robert Perry who
hopefully will.

Interestingly (?) Arlingham is on the River Severn just opposite New*n*ham!

Unlike most of the other Treble Jump methods, there isn't an underlying
Newham S Minor (or Newnham S Minor) from which the TJ method
might have been derived.  But there is a Newhall Surprise Minor, so, given
the other spelling mistakes, perhaps this was the intended name.  I
remember the days of posting hand-written peal and QP reports to the RW!
