Where are the RCE's?

Post by tishgibbons » Wed Jan 02, 2019 7:32 pm

I haven't used SP for a while and the site is a bit different now. I cannot find the RCEs - any idea where they're hid - or should I go to Specsavers??

Hi Tish,

The RCE should be accessible via a link above the certificate. See the crudely arrowed item in the image below.

The one in the example below is the only relative of mine that I know of to have died following being struck by lightning.

All the best

thank you Andrew! Well it seems the reason I couldn't find it is because there wasn't an RCE on the entry. The cert I'm looking at shows no cause of death and I thought that a squiggle in the margin referred to an RCE. Not as exotic as being struck by lightening!
Thanks

Hi Tish,

Another possibility is that an RCE does exist, but has been missed from the SP index. Do you have a scan of the note (squiggle) in the margin that you can show here?

All the best,

AndrewP
