Acknowledgements:    I would like to thank my son David for his help and expertise in designing and setting out these pages.   Without his expertise, co-operation and encouragement I could not have succeeded.    Also the patience, understanding and enthusiasm of my wife May, a very special and understanding lady without whom I could not have achieved so much.
