I once knew an old Canadian lumberjack who in his long career ended up a log way from 20 but in a darkroom the key word is long :D

The only answer I can think of is that Ilford made changes to Kentmere RC which it didn't to FB as clearly Ilford took over the production of Kentmere as far back as 2008. I recall this being a...
