Help to read a name please
« on: Thursday 02 December 21 21:06 GMT (UK) »
  I would like the first name in this clip to be John Craft, but I can't quite convince myself. The other names are for comparison, but probably not much help.

My first impression was Croft as well. Doesn't mean it isn't the same person though, that's a minor spelling difference compared to some I've seen!

  Croft would be OK, but I can't make the second letter an "r"?

  His "r"s vary a lot, but I think I have found one now with enough similarity that I can accept it.
    Thank you.
