    Ross,

    Thank you. I apologise if I have missed the thread discussing this, but what is the final plan for Henk's database? Whilst I have only fed a little info into the machine, there are a fair number of people who have provided regular updates. It seems a shame to leave this legacy with a couple of people, with no clear plan to widen it to a larger audience.

    Rgds and thanks

    Hello,

    The reason this loss was not included in The late Henk Welting's unaccounted listing is because he was aware of the details. Rich Allenby has also investigated this loss:
