I have analysed the peals of Doubles rung during 1995 and published in The Ringing World. I found 169 peals; 42 in one method and 93 in from 2 to 100 methods. The remaining 34 contained variations and all conformed with Decision (D) C.3.
However, the peal at Crosthwaite on 23 December (96/127) was incompletely reported; extent (16) was unclear in the manuscript.
Moreover, the reports of the 13 peals listed in figure 1 did not conform with Decision (D) C.4 as they did not state the numbers of methods and variations separately; the correction column shows how they should have been reported.
4 of the peals in figure 1 (marked *) claimed from 1 to 5 "variations" which use only standard calls for the parent methods and, in accordance with Decision (E) A.3, are not entitled to different names.
If any band is unsure how the numbers were arrived at for their peal, I will be pleased to provide details on receipt of a stamped addressed envelope.
I also noticed minor discrepancies in the reports of the following peals:
