Hi Simon (and your colleagues at Ilford).

Thanks for posting.

More years ago than I care to remember I commenced with photographic endeavours with Ilford film and paper. After a brief affair with a German mistress (who left me) I've returned to Ilford. I take heart from your comments that Harman is a stable and profitable company with flexible manufacturing capability; low inventory and committed to R&D and new products. All this suggests to me that you are likely to be round for a while.

But if you wish to strengthen and deepen our relationship: what about a thin-base ortho-litho sheet film suitable for mono masking techniques - like the recently discontinued Arista APHS II? (... you gotta admit it makes a change from the incessant requests for Pan-F or Delta 400 in sheet film )

Best wishes for the future.
