Been going through my old messages and I can't believe I have not replied to the pair of you on your kind help on finding Louisa Silk.
Yes in deed you have found the right person and many thanks for this. I must sincerely apologise for the delay in replying my thanks as I know how infuriating it is when people donot appreciate your help and seem to just take via the internet.
