Re: Billy Drake

Good afternoon Bruce,

hope you had a good weekend.
Have you found the time to have a look in your Drake book ?

Greetings from Germany to Australia,

Michael

Re: Billy Drake

Dear Bruce,

thanks a lot for checking.
Thus, Drake's P-40 score is either
  • 14 [13+2] of a total of 19 [18+2] according to Shores and Williams (1994),
  • 16 [15+2] of a total of 21 [20+2] according to Shores (1999),
  • 14 [13+2] of a total of 21 [20+2] according to Thomas (2002) or
  • 18 [17+2] of a total of 25 [23+4] according to himself and Shores (2009).
Which is the most valid ?

Michael
