Sounds interesting any chance of a few pictures. What is the message
when you type *help ?
If you get a chance go here: http://8bs.com/substarturn.htm you will be
able to see the ROM I am looking for looks like. It has SYNTEL on the
PCB. But let us know what the *help reveals.
Much appreciation for looking, we may be on to something here.

Subject: [BBC-Micro] Lathe ROM modules... / Watford VPO ROM
Sorry, I lost the original post about this so can't remember the title!
I've just been going through all of my Acorn stuff to see what I have,
of new stuff's turned up recently.
I found in a Master machine a ROM module very like the one described the
day for controlling a lathe - the ROM chip itself plugged into a carrier
containing a PAL chip, which in turn plugs into the system board.
The ROM in question in this machine has a Watford label with 'VPO'
it in pen. The PAL chip is a 16L8. The ROM carrier has the text
Unlikely that the decoding done by the PAL is the same I suppose, but
know. I'm not sure what this Watford ROM is for - does VPO mean anything
anyone? The machine has an 80186 coprocessor fitted, so maybe it's
do with that; there's nothing special about the internals of the machine
