Another of those things that I have read so many times in AR but not realised the importance of such a simple piece of information.

I'm also reminded of an incident in my older teenage years (early 1970s) when a friend in London sent me a telegram to say they were unable to visit that day, my maternal grandparents, who I lived with, were appaled as they were only used to telegrams being used for bad news (their son had been killed in WWII) or celebrations such as wedding congratulations.
