Transcriber's notes

I have been transcribing the Collector's name as "John E. Durnan R S [Royal Sappers] & Miners", as it was accepted on the first page of this volume that I tried -OS1/11/16/61. I have just seen the name transcribed by another volunteer as " John E. DAVERAN etc" on page 66 of this volume, and on looking very carefully, it could be right. I have changed my earlier pages to "Daveran" as he does appear in the list of Surveyors etc.
