OK, I'll go for a Thunderbolt, is it allowed and acceptable etiquette to
show an Ebay ad to check it's the later type, which I think it is?

You have all been a great help, thank you very much indeed, I doubt I
will become as obsessive with accuracy as some of you apparently are,
but it's good to know that such a friendly and sharing group of
experts exists in one locale!
