Due to the large quantity of

Banknote production was switched

from Fforde to Page when he became

chief cashier 1st March 1970.

However, there were not enough

signature block available so Fforde

signature blocks were used concurrently

with the Page signature blocks for over a

year. For the 1 notes, so far, 62 signature

sequence pairs prefixes have been logged.

The first signature pairings

recorded are Ref: (B. 305) with (B. 320)

S87L & S89L & S90L

We have some examples of later

Prefixes: - S92L & S99L

Could Page signatures exist for these

other S~~L examples !?
