Note on calling positions for half-lead calls
Half-lead calls are 58 for bob, 5678 for single, 56 for variable hunt single. ½, 3½ and 6½ indicate positions (and not necessarily the number of leads after the last course end) and are the half-lead equivalents of W, H and M respectively. Similarly 1/1½ and 4½/5 are equivalent to 5ths/4ths with one of the calls at the half-lead.

Rung at Yatton, 27 October 1973

There are some variants of this composition: (i) the first call at 1 may be called as a single throughout or (ii) the first call at 1 may be called as a single in alternate parts and the bracketed call at W either bob or single (but must be the same in all parts). These variants simply alter the order in which the music is obtained.
