Hi
I don't know what you have seen, but there is a record on FMP which gives more or less what you have.
There is also a 14 page record on A------Y (some pages nothing on). If you have not seen this, I may be able to send you the pages by email, if you send me your address by private msg. If you have not made three posts, you must do this before you can send a msg
