Update, 2017, When first rung the Central Council thought this was not a method but a `Non-Method Block' as it is false in the plain course (which we did not ring any of) even though the peal composition was true. To satisfy the CC the `method' had an alternative official name `Not A Block Major'. The Central Council have now agreed (2017) that this is actually a method and Normandy Surprise Major is now the `official name'.
