Actually, I am no stranger to the  Deciphering  Handwriting Board.........  :)
You'll see I do quite a lot of it, so hopefully this won't be too bad - unless it's in Latin, and then I will have a problem!

I've sent you a pm StevieSteve.
Many thanks indeed.

Cool - the writing's very neat, just a lot of it, and there's only a few snippets of Latin
