Re: Sad news

I have just seen this post. How dreadfully sad. I met Gerry on a few occasions. Another legend leaves us. Sincere condolences Peter and to those who knew him. His legacy lives on.

Re: Ruffler & Walker Allwin List

I couldn't help noticing that the cases of the vending allwins seems to vary between 2 styles. Some have extended tops and others are flush. Anyone know or have any ideas whether there were two different options offered?
