Thank you for your kind words regarding my Father-in-Law.  In 2008 Christopher's extensive design portfolio was bequest to the British Museum where it has been safe-guarded for the Nation.  I am currently researching and recording his work which is gradually been put onto Wikipedia for all to share, as his contribution to coin design,  and hence world economies,  has to date been unrecorded but is quite considerable.  Regards

Yes, they do exist there, but I expect they're a lot more savage than the ones we're used to!

Hello Spyke63, and welcome to the forum. I've had a lot of fun researching Mr Ironside's work, and have also looked up some of it in the National Archives. I'm sure you've already had a look at my other posts on the subject, as I sent links to them to his daughter, Virginia Ironside, but if you haven't, you can always PM me.

I have looked at your forum and have spoken to Virginia at length.  Thank you.  The National Archives is the next step.
