I think Susan Craven's Nelson set is similar. Of course if all the drone tenons are the same size the drones can be swapped at will - there are several ways of doing the drone stocks. The way I do it the two small drones could be swapped around and ditto the two big ones.
I think TC was just holding what he was given - he couldn't play at that stage, I believe was the comment. It was taken in April 1964, only a few months before his death.

The Caisleys would rescue him from the home he was living in, which were pretty basic / horrendous in those days I would think, and he would spend some weekends at their house. Or so I was told.
