French BAYKO Patent - #794,985

Well, this is a surprise...
...I always thought that a patent is a patent is a patent...
...but apparently not!
One of the few things I thought I knew about patents was that, when a patent was granted, that was it - the world would recognise it - poor foolish boy that I am!
This page shows a copy of French Patent #794,985, which was granted to Plimpton at 14:42, on August 17th, 1935!
Francophile I may be, but it doesn't totally surprise me that, if any market needed further protection, the French market would be up there...
...more seriously, this would provide better protection in the Francophone world.
Shown below are photographs of the patent, currently housed in the archive section of the Liverpool Maritime Museum, who I hope to persuade to allow me to scan the document to provide better quality images...
...either that or I will put my schoolboy French and / or the patience of the Institute National de la Propriete Industrial to the test and try and get a replica from them.
So far as I can deduce, the meat of the document is a straight translation of the English equivalent, supported by the same drawing.
