Hi all, 

Firstly, many thanks for all the messages of best wishes
etc. They are much appreciated. 

We have excellent insurance, thanks to
the inclinations of my wife. 

We are over the worst of it now and
living with a local single man in his 60's who welcomes some company and

an aluminium case, mid 2014. We didn't try the former ( I want to some
time) but the latter restored perfectly !! :-) 

I'm in the process of
getting stuff together to do a fresh backup of all that 2014 material.

The worst camera etc losses are my E-1 (Ian Manners is sending me one,
for which I will be everlastingly grateful) and my E-3 with DZ 14-54

As a replacement I am considering one of these as a possibility
