    Dont think Melvin has won in yorkshire , wales , north , scotland , north west...
    I think Major Peter Parkes would be up at the top , with a win in every area apart from Wales...

    Did he not win with Alliance a couple of years ago...still I am sure there was a Qualifying spot in the London area..I could be a bit off here but I am sure I read that he has 29 area wins ( or qualifying spots) , I dont think the Mjr has taken a band to the Welsh Area..still a very impressive record

    Last year, Melvin White conducted Albourne in the 1st Section in the West of England and Redridge in the Championship Section in London & SC and got 1st with both!

    Didn't do too bad in the finals either, 4th with Aldbourne and 7th with Redbridge!

    Strike that!
    I've done my research. It was Major McElligott who won with Staines in section 1 (twice ) - knew it was a major.
    Major P was 2nd on Prague with Alliance.
