Email from Harmon Fine 19th July.
you have it as a security marking also.
no room for wilson on this marking.
Email from Philippe Orsetti 19th July.
On the Security Markings list, I tried to record names exactly the way they
appear on the markings. So far, the Forwarding Agents have been recorded
along firm's names, regardless of the way it was written on the marking. I
agree that there is no room for "Wilson" in this marking, but it correspond
to this firm FA marking and not Group I # 32A unframed SM from Shanghai.
