As original discoverer of Green Lake Grotto do I now have the " right " to enlarge the squeeze

Do you? I am not sure you do.  Or again I guess it depends... if it was completely dugout (i.e. mined) then maybe - but it its a section of cave I am not sure you can go back and enlarge it just because you were first.

Many apologies if I've misunderstood your intention, but you were replying to a question posed by TOR, so it seems inconsistent to state:

I got hooked when I was about 7 or 8 (1950ish) when the BBC showed a film called 'Padirac, the black river'. It was years later in Scouting and then the Brighton Explorers Club before I achieved my objective.

Wish I could find a copy of that film, just to see if it's still as appealing.

Perhaps you can try to fnd the French version:  PADIRAC, RIVIÈRE DE LA NUIT

Many thanks.  :)
The date's about right. Must be the same film. I'll start looking.
