    New South Wales about 200 km south of sydney on the beach front. Crystal clear water, surfing, snorkelling, and jet skiing. But otherwise quiet and peaceful. I will enjoy it, and place it in the early B&H section of my collection.
    Thankyou so much for your input.

    Ulladulla?

    That appears to be a lot of Boosey & Hawkes horns you have (6, yes?) - are you an aficionado, or is this only a small subset of your wider collection may I ask? I must check the number on mine, but I have a B&H trumpet which had a little label in the case saying "Made in Lucknow, India". I initially thought that was for the trumpet but am unsure now since somebody suggested it might be for the case.

    Callala bay part of jervis bay area. Up from ulladulla. And I do have plenty of B&H horns. I started with a cornet, then went to trumpets. The variation is quite astounding in the valves, slides, design and other features. I just love them.
