Rats Alley give just one Incandescent Trench at 36NW4 Bois Grenier.....15c,d,11a,b. There is no Candle trench in the same locality, are you expecting them to be together?

Thanks for the link Reg,
I thought it was but for the life of me mine looks totally different. I’ve found out that I have an old cookie that had not cleared itself out, seems to look a bit better now.
