thanks again for the replys - the driller works one - I know that its for a lady in her 20's in 1940's - she was a factory worker for many years in and around bristol and clevedon so I wonder if that helps with sorting the words out.

I agree with that.

I wondered how they got the bubbles in Aero bars. :D:D

I was going to say Lino works but how much drilling goes on with Lino ????!
Aero makes more sense - I'd like to see another capital A though

When I was taught "Real Writing" in the early 1950s, that's exactly what a capital A looked like.
