The name of Gilbert Harriman is remembered in my family as the trainer of my grandfather, Charles Warren’s racing ponies, known as the “Tile” ponies, during the years 1920-1923. When one of the Tile ponies won the Professional Cup at the Happy Valley Derby, a photographer was hired to commemorate the occasion, snapping Charles Warren and his daughter Evelyn together with Harriman and the magnificent trophy for posterity.

HMS Tamar in colour from an amateur 8mm pre-war film clip, that had been reprocessed for TV viewing and grabbed from a TV screen with a hand-held digital camera.

Not the greatest of sharpness, but interesting as a general view of the naval basin in colour in 1939.
