“Oh! What a giveaway”

I believe the title of this post to be a quotation from the BBC radio programme “I’m Sorry, I’ll Read That Again” from the early 1970s. It was usually spoken by Tim Brooke-Taylor after inadvertently revealing something.

Today I returned the gaming cloth received a couple of days ago (see post https://generalwhiskers.com/2020/03/09/poor-service/).

I was surprised to see that the sender’s address was in fact the company from whom I have previously bought all my previous cloths with no problems whatsoever. Because of previous good service I will name them. Deep-Cut Studios

I did not use this company for my current project because it was outside the sizes that they were apparently able to produce. I wonder how much extra I paid for the intermediate UK company to get involved and complicate the order?

The return postage was over GBP 50, which I am claiming back from the UK agent. Incidentally the producer of the cloth informs me that he has not yet been paid for the original or replacement cloths.

But here is a clip from what I hope to receive:

Based on the cloth without hexagons and this clip it looks like what I need. The full cloth is 16ft x 7ft with two land areas divided by a sea area, approximately 1/3 each, with a 6cm hexagon grid. Well, that’s what I ordered!

Caveat Emptor.
