E M ELWARD NEWCOMERS
CLASS (1) 1st Barnard & Monk.
NEW COLOUR AA (1) Sorry but No Award as not my idea of a New
Colour. I simply saw this as a Buff cum
Dark Cream or vice versa. Another day, I could see a silly situation where I
could be considering the same shade as a Dark Cream in one class and then later
as a Buff in the New Colour class. Also,
the coat under needs watching as thinning from armpits could be a problem.
