Hey Peter, I felt flattered by your compliment about "restraint" -- only modesty demanded that I should laugh it away ;-)  Of course you never meant any offence by "Gunga Din".
 
Thanks again, and with my best regards,
 CR

Not meant in any way negative, believe me.
It used to be a colloquial way of making a complement when
I was young and the Empire was still intact.

Cheers,
Peter
