Repeat twice.

Replace the first two leads of the first part by the following start
12345678
21436587
12463857
21648375
21463857
12648375
21684735
12867453
12684735
 

The start is most naturally thought of as a single in 12, made as the treble would otherwise have hunted 2-3, omitting the central 24 rows of the lead. However, to be in compliance with the Central Council's Decisions [(E)A.2., as of February 2012] it must instead be thought of as three calls in close succession in the same lead: the first omitting changes 4 through 15 of the lead; followed by a replacement of the half lead by place notation 12; followed by a third call omitting the next twelve changes.
 
Contains 23 65s, 22 56s, 9 each 5678s off the front and 8765s off the front, back rounds, and all 7 near misses.
Also true to Lessness and Uxbridge.


Rung at Godmanchester on 19 May 2012, conducted by Michael G Purday.
