Yes Jool, you are quite right. I should have looked a lot closer!

Tie, side of head and back of head.  No beasts. My time at agricultural college must have been wasted.

I have so misled xinia.

Well blow me down... that is what my (totally un Family history orientated ---) Other Half  mentioned.. and it sure does look like it..

ok..

It was said that Robert the elder was a Wesleyan Chapel man and kept himself to the Front room on Sundays .. not allowing anyone to interfere with his quiet time..   ! 

 He was in the Boer War with his brother Albert.   So maybe he had a lot to ponder.

xin

Which means I may find more through them :)
