Less than a week after WELKS the formerly named Birmingham National Show, now held at the Staffordshire County Showground, took place just outside Stafford; terriers were judged on the first day, Thursday 4th May, and judging Norfolk Terriers was Mr Paul Wilkinson, who has judged the breed several times. He drew quite a reasonable entry of 44 consisting of 11 different dogs with two absentees, and 31 bitches, less four missing; so a total of 38 appearing in the ring.

Tidied up and shown in the ring by Jackie Phillips, he is from the first litter that Denise has bred, sired by Moortop Marks Delivery out of Lady Miss Cheif.
