Thanks for the extra info. I wondered why I couldn't see a "5" in that date, and had no idea what the "pue" word was! That's quite a useful thing to know in terms of dates.  :)

Always nice when the records coincide like that.

There's an excellent brief guide to old numbers, dates and other useful things here:
