That a very great help. Lots of areas walked ovrer twice as I had assumed must be the case.

If Thain was accurate with his inquest testimony that he passed Bakers Row every 30 minutes I can only conclude that he did not cover every street every circuit,

I just do not see a speed of over 4mph as being viable over a whole nights patrol..

Of course it may be that the 30 minutes he stated was not exact.

You are a star Monty.
