This hand is much the same as S.916-1. Differences include the use of low s throughout, except for three examples of the high form (albanes at the end of the line, bisceop, and stowe); high s is higher and has a much larger head than in Anglo-Caroline. The form of d is much the same as that of the main hand, but with a thick back which can be quite straight and relatively long and which lacks the vertical tip. The tongue of f is concave up and tapering. The vertical strokes of m, n, and r are thicker and straighter than in the main hand.
