Hahaa! Yes, your lovely bike and the engraving on the Jug also made me curious and also could well understand your frustration as to who ported it / engraved the 'TLR' and who it was! I remembered a couple of years ago the TLR shop, as I had been looking

For sure- can imagine your pain in seeing that lovely Goldie being sold.... Me also- similar story. Dad had 2 other DBD34 Gold Stars- sold off through time for money that doesn't bear thinking about now- alongside some of the parts (RRT2 Boxes etc!!)
