Re: Clown Catcher, info please

Re: The Late Maurice Felce

Re: Burstow and Hewlett Sale

I viewed the auction on Monday the Caille was in need of considerable work and missing significant parts which I would think could only be found in the USA . The footballer was described as Doughty and Barret as the auctioneer was told this by an "expert" in Hastings. I have seen four of these machi...
