Nancy signs a mark
[Angus hand writing is large, forward slanted and harsh, with broken lines and heavy bearing down  
Dugald's writing is with a fine pen and slightly slanted forward, sort of shaky  
Neill Buie's writing is a mix between the two with large, heavy letters of a more ornate style, however 
looks as though the owner might be older
Neill Munroe's is by far the most presentable, firm with broad strokes]
