By email from:Volketswil, Switzerland, 17th October 2007

In response to a request from several members, Werner has sent me a list of the contents of his survival kit for publication. Fortunately none of the following were required this year, but who knows on other occasions? We look forward to seeing Werner at Charlecote in 2008.
