    Thanks VC that's cleared up quite a lot, and I've added a link in my blog side panel as so useful. The only ones I can't find now are:-

    Heinz Soup
    Jack Hawkins*
    Otto's Papa*
    Rosella*
    Sandpipe

    'Sandpipe' might be a mistaken name somewhere along the line. Could be Sandpoint.

    I think all of these have been in the Vine's seed circle and/or the VSP.
    Heinz didn't have "Soup".
    J.Hawkins & O.Papa were from Marco IIRC.
    Rosella came from Deano and are sold by many suppliers.
    Sandpoint came from Sparrow.

    There's probably more info about them on the Vine.
