LAST Saturday, I bought a writing bureau at the auction at the Murton Livestock Centre.

Slid away, out of sight above the fitment in the top section, was a document which relates to a chap called James Bryan Robson who lived on Fourth Avenue. The document was an original birth certificate for James dated mid-1920s.

I would like to return this document. If you are related or you know of anyone who is, please contact me and I will be happy return the document on being furnished with evidence relating to Mr Roberts.
