Anyone know who BJ is at the Beckley Pottery, Isle of White? Cant seem to find any references to Beckley other than Jo Lester at moment.





thanks

Thaks Potty, I came across Donald, but I was convinced it was a B.

Doh! just discovered his wife was called Berta Embarrassed I wonder if its her or if it is just a D and I need glasses Surrender

It's just the way his mark is, I do agree it looks more like a B than a D. Big Laughter
