Hi Ian, As you have no replies to date, I thought I would start the ball rolling. As you can see from my email address I live "down under" however my grandfather was born Durham, which is not that far from Cumbria. Last year I visited your part of the world and visited Durham, Loudoun Castle, Cumbria etc. I am trying to find more about the Lowdensin N England or Ayreshire. Maybe you have a similar interest? Cheers Dennis PS I am ex RNZAF and have an ongoing interest in aviation matters!
