With regards to resyncing the submirror, 4 out 5 respondents suggested 
using metareplace
with -e option. One respondent suggested I just use metattach to resync the 
device. Being
excessively timid I was not brave enough to try the second method (which I 
have no doubt
would have worked) so I went with the majority and the first method which 
I recreated the metadb replicas as below.

Thanks again to all respondents.
