"Ok, so you guys know I only like to post the atypical ones on here, the ones that really make me scratch my head on and would love to get a few other trained eyes on!
Once again there is no typical upstroke on the first 'h', the…"
"Thanks Steve, that’s what I’m leaning towards as well. The lack of strong upstroke on the ‘h’ in Charlton is what really threw me at first though! Have you ever seen another example with that variation?"
