Knitting Needle Conversions

I often get frustrated by knitting needles!!  Not just because the stitches fall off when I'm not looking, or because they mysteriously get tangled up in my knitting - but because sometimes I get confused by what size I am supposed to be using!  I love old and vintage patterns and sometimes I need to work out whether this is using a UK, US, European or any other knitting needle size.
