Can you try rubbing a tiny bit of talc over the signature and taking a clearer image of it?
I have a strong suspicion it might read Anthony Stern, but I really can't see it quite well enough to be sure or to compare it.

Thank you for the quick reply on this post im thinking you may well be correct with the idea of stern, Ive tried a different angle with talc it is difficult to photograph as it has been signed so close to middle sort of on an angle hope it helps more thankyou...

Have a banana  ;D - Anthony Stern, absolutely. (I've compared it with my confirmed and correct signature on a plate)
