Hi ~~~~~
I'm still no further forward really. If Liz is correct , I'll add

I-S B were W for B C and went South / Solo in the 1950s and 1960s ..?

I too live too far from the sea, but can you skim flat stones/pebbles across the water and make them jump ? Dad taught me that one. :-)


Liz Report 11 Oct 2011 19:13

I love throwing pebbles in the sea - but we live too far away to do it very often.

I-S B were W for B C and went S in the 1950s and 1960s

Hi Liz and all~~
I may have thrown you off track by putting up those dates... blank myself !

I-S B won W for Bronze Cup and won Silver in the 1924 /1925 / 1934 /1935 and the 1926 / 1927..?

Blindly guessing, and I know the answer doesn't make grammatical sense ...Grr

Common Patricia.... give us a clue or tell if any of our 'guesses' are close ;-)
