No confirmation that my item was found. Only just noticed there are options for setting the journey times…guess they must have been optional. Couldn’t figure out the location of their office at WAT, might try again on Monday 2nd August 2010.

Had that coat for ages, bit sad that I’ve lost it. Was showing some wear and tear but still nice to use. The woollen gloves and hat in it were really good.
