Thank you for your comment!
Unfortunately for me, I live in Switzerland and have no access from here to the British Library. Perhaps one day, on a visit to the U.K. I will be able to see the document you mention.
I will add your information regarding John Bonham, to my list.

Thanks again!
Best wishes, Eva
