Hi, is it a "W" or could it be a "U", I was wondering if it could be "............ under Orders".

Just a thought.

Hi, you're welcome, I was just looking as if there was a upward stroke when the "U" had been written, the same as the upward stroke after the letter "D" on embarked on the line above.
