Subject: [CR]Martin's new Bates website


Thanks for taking the time to get your Bates website underway. I'll try to contribute to it when I get my own Bates looking a bit more respectable. Hopefully, if enough of us send you pictures, you'll be able to develop a "gallery" like that on Bob Reid's Flying Scot site.

In the meantime, can I make two requests? It would be great if you could explain on the site how to date a Bates from frame numbers. Also, I'd love to see some Bates catalogues from the 1940s and 1950s. Any plans to add catalogue scans to the site? If so, I have scans of a 1930s catalogue that I could send to get this part of things rolling.

Again, well done and keep up the good work!
