Top man slippery, its taken me a while to go through the discription and find out what each bit means but yes, it does seem to be of the Lautour family and the location is pretty decisive also, in fact it was found less than a kilometer and a half from the Hexton estate :thumbsup:

Thanks very much for your time and effort,

all the best,

aoo :thumbsup:
