    perhaps scan them in if not to personal and forum members may well be able to help fill the gaps

    Cheers for that CL1 they have just come into my possession,so are a bit personal but will bear it in mind, if i have the knowledge to get around this site on how to scan on here.Know doubt the people who have been helpful in the past can fill in the missing links

    Our best bet is to entice Larry to join in the thread and ask him if he still remembers !

    Hi

    Would holding it up in front of a bright light give enough contrast to see it, or as stated try scanning it and then playing around with contrast and brightness?

    regards
