    Hi Dave - might be worth doing a bit more of an intro; I know who you are, but others may not.

    Glad to have you here.

    Welcome Dave. I met you at the last hallmarking info day - remember the gold nugget brooch? I've already got a few new questions to pester you with but will come back fresh in the morning...

    Hello! Strap in Dave, you're going to get plenty of questions!.
    I am also secretly hoping you have the LAO equivalent of a scout jumper with all those badges ;-)

    I know him too, got a warm welcome a few weeks ago. I forgot to leave my parcel with you and ended up dragging it back to Exeter again. Have to get around to sending it up. Pat Lee (Isca Silver)

    I have never met Dave, but this is Dave, when he was made Fellow of the Institute of Professional Goldsmiths last year.
