Thanks to all of you who took the trouble to reply.

Having looked through the suggestions I believe that the puzzling word in the middle is "screen". checking the other writing on the same register page I could decipher the S and now looking closely I can see an r and at least one e.

Thanks for your help and for letting me know what a screen boy was. I've noted the URLs for future use.
