    Hi Dave,
    I have read that before, I think in the meentime you and John have sorted it out much better. Going a bit further with the Hunt and Roskell story, I spent some time looking through David Penney´s archive today.
    Slow work but pays off. You have to tell your self not to look at other interesting clocks and watches-I found five more numbers for my lists, and two watches made by Nicole Nielsen for Roskell. I have put them on my update list page 17. They do though fit into the time after they had sold the business to J.W.Benson. Apart from the archive Mr Penney he had a movement by NN for sale which I bought myself for the hard work-if I can get it working it might make a nice wrist watch.

    Regards,

    Allan.

    Hi Marty,
    You removed the full size image-thanks-but you also removed the update of the Roskell file-should I try again or can you put it in.

    Regards,

    Allan.

    I thought the image was of a pocket watch, Allan, not a pdf or other text file ??? If it was a pdf, as I don't have the original, my apologies - could you post it again please?

    Attaching PDF files will work "correctly" on the new site and you will be able to read them without downloading.
