Firstly, I have to acknowledge the help given to me by my Aunty Gertie (Gertrude Kroezen) for her assistance with supplying me with much of the information I have put in to this site.

I would also like to thank the many other people who have given me help and assisted me with getting all the information shown on this site in to a usable form.
