Sketches at the Royal Tournament

Leaves from an artist's sketch book - impressions of some of the figures and incidents at the Royal tournament by Fortunino Matania. The first 'vignette' shows the quarterstaff display between Robin Hood and Little John (a humorous interlude). On the right is one of the 1st Life Guards in the musical double ride and below him one of 'O' Battery (the Rocket Troop) of the Royal Horse Artillery who perform their difficult Musical Drive with whirling guns. The centre figure is that of Britannia, before whom the Royal Navy, past and present - passes in review at the end of the pageant. Finally, a vignette of the rapier and dagger display. Date: 1922

The Prince of Wales wears checks & pullover for golf, 1930

Article featured in the magazine, 'Man and his Clothes' commenting with interest on the ensemble worn by Edward, Prince of Wales (later King Edward VIII, Duke of Windsor) to play golf. His plus four suit was in a crotal red and black check for matches he played at Le Touquet, his pullover was tucked in (a style many people had condemned as 'cheap' apparently) and his stockings were in light fawn with over checking. His partner is Colonel Myddleton who was wearing an interesting proof golf jacket with two vertical pockets just beneath the lapels, for his pipe, tobacco pouch and 'other odds and ends'. Date: 1930
