Whitefriars Owls
« on: February 21, 2010, 09:00:18 AM »
Can I pick your brains about Whitefriars Owl colours?

The later catalogues list only flint as a colour option.  What other colours were they produced in and when?  The 1972 Catalogue lists F & S.  F being flint obviously but what is S?  From memory I have them in at least 3 colours - lots of Flint ones,  some deep blue ones and some twiglight ones though I have yet to unearth them from the shed.

Certainly Ruby not in the catalogues, but seems Stanj thinks there are some as I have a copy of a posting he did some time ago.  But I suppose we should stick to what the catalogues say.
