Looked at this following your post the other day Bill, yes very interesting, but things are hectic here at present, so I failed to comment.
Obviously been in archives for some time.
Was there any follow up on this with Mr Pegler ? If he still has it, I would be quite willing to go to Wigan and get some more in-focus shots of the mess tin, if he would allow it.
