Thanks for your help, unfortunately I can't see the reg clearly from any of my photos, but I'm trying to find it out with some friends. I'll let you know as soon as I know it. Thank you!

Given by the number of segments I'd guess that it's a -77 type

I can't find any online references to that, or similar registrations.

All I can think of otherwise is to email various manufacturers to see if they recognise it.

Was the photo taken at any particular event where there was a record of who attended or did you just catch the 2 balloons on their own?
