BBC64 camera line-up 'chip-chart'

I'm at the studio build today setting up camera channels and doing general line-up. We've supplied the good-old BBC64 camera chart which I used to spend many happy hours staring at whilst lining-up cameras for studio/OB shoots. When I die (and they lay me to rest....) I want this and Test Card F on my gravestone!
The info sheet has all the reflectance figures and frequency gratings for when you have the camera focused full-frame on the chart.
Oh, does anyone know why the light-trap in the middle of the chart is called a Gregory Hole?
Also - ex-BBC type, can you still get hold of Cardboard Kate?
