George Osborn confounded my mentioning to him a short while ago at Broadway that all touches of Plain Bob coming round at handstroke are false. Well, they are (just try writing out the changes preceding rounds at handstroke and you will find they are the first lead of Plain Bob in reverse order); but not, as George discovered, when you mix such changes into a 240 of Plain Bob Doubles that repeats all the changes at handstroke and backstroke. As ever, the internet provided the goods. George called it (I think for the first time successfully) at Buckland for Sunday evening ringing there.
OK, you'll say, what's a Single in
Plain Bob Doubles? Here it is:-
