    Good to see the younger element involved with a restoration -- have a passing interest in Courage1786 as my last name is Courage & I'm from Hampshire, many moons ago .
    Have never been able to link my side of the family to the Courage brewery -- oh the possibilities!! -- anyway keep up the good work -- post photo's when you can.


    cheers Richard Courage
