I WOULD like to appeal to your readership for help in retrieving a lost item.

I was visiting Cumbria to celebrate my mother's 80th birthday recently and on my return journey stopped on the A6 in a lay-by just before Wickersgill to put on waterproofs.

I believe my leather Parker pen case containing a black Parker fountain and ballpoint pen and a silver multi-function pen fell from my luggage.

If found I would love to have them back, we have been together for many years and seen a lot of the world.

I can be contacted by email at legrange1@yahoo.com or by phone on 0031624496682 or 0031208457471.
