Notes

During the move to Leeds, another spontoon was found bearing the number VII.1204 in addition to its current number VII.1834 (q.v. for further information).The present ('standard', '1792-1830 pattern') sergeant's spontoon on loan to the Maison Dieu at Dover (Loan L1) has been numbered VII.1204 since at least Mr William Reid's time on the staff (mid 1960s ?) - see old inventory cards.
