It would be impossible for me to list every single promotional tray simply because there are thousands of them.

Chance would produce these trays to order, for a minimum quantity of 250, meaning many villages, towns, churches, museums, institutions, etc. would have trays custom-made. On top of this, there was also Webbs and Duro-Ray that made almost identical trays to order. So my books concentrated on just a few notable ones. These promotional trays are invariably a single colour, hence cheaper and more commonly found as promotional trays.

The pictorial trays (not promotional trays) listed in my book are known to have been made by Chance, for its own purposes, and these are invariably in colour.

Keith - I wasn't being serious  ;)            I've been on the C/Sark and the Victory, so perhaps there's a chance I'll see the other one ;D
