BAYKO in JORDAN

I currently have no BAYKO documents from the Jordanian market...
....but I do have a little information on this BAYKO market.
 
Thanks to Marwan Nusair for this information.
 
Marwan tells me that he and his brother had a BAYKO set #3 - indeed he still has the contents - which he shared with his brother at their home in Jordan in the mid 1950s.
Marwan isn't 100% certain that his BAYKO was actually bought in Jordan - though he believes it was - as his parents made regular trips to Beirut in neighbouring Lebanon, where we know that BAYKO was available. The post-war British influence in the area was significant, so there is every reason to think Marwan is right.
At the time, MECCANO was imported via Boutagy and Sons, who, I believe were based in Amman. This strongly suggests that they would have imported BAYKO after the takeover. Unfortunately I have no information about who, if anybody, carried out the role on behalf of Plimpton - don't forget, Plimpton also supplied retailers directly from the U.K.
Marwan now lives in Cincinnati, Ohio in the US, and keeps the BAYKO flag flying there.
