One thing you may have noticed is that these doubles are nearby to a well known deep sky object. I seem to collect a lot of these, and if you look hard there are quite a few, some even in the same field!
Cheers John. I'm a bit confused now- you mentioned HWE48 as being about a degree south of M69, but that's not where I found it. HWE 43 is about a degree south of M69, but 48 is quite some distance away (and at mag 10 for both stars which may explain why it was such a challenge!).
