    Was an item in Pathe Pictorial - issue number unknown.

    Note: paper records and leader state was originally UN7J - this is not on our Index Database and is an odd number for our old system - mystery!

    Most of the missing material is probably to be found on EP295, item called "Unknown Play"

    Safety print only - original decomposed and destroyed.
