Thanks Nigel.  made my day. :kissy:

Came from flood ravaged Queensland. Landed in Western Australia when we were threatened by a cyclone. Glass is just so tough!
Cost me twice as much in postage to get it here as the bid cost !

Model no FT 222. Designed by Frank Thrower 1978/79. Made for Dartington by Wood Brothers. Not very common.
