Bob Lyall a collector in UK, who knew Fred Pridmore fairly well, informed me in 2002 October I quote As for Ceylon, well I have 70+ pieces, mostly lacking the locally made pieces that I think Fred got when stationed in Ceylon during his army career. I visited him in 2005 June and was able to get scans of the tokens from his collection which are linked in this webpage.

I thank Bob Lyall of UK, for the scans of these tokens from his collection. which I obtained when I visited him in England in 2005 June.
