PS - he (Lord Faringdon) had another class of GCR loco named after his Scottish estate = Glenalmond class
Tim, he was my grandfather, not my father. He died when I was not quite 1 year old. I have wanted to respond to an earlier post suggesting that he was not a good golfer. He came from a family of outstanding golfers. His brother was twice US amateur champion and he (Walter) was Captain of St George's, Sandwich. He was a leading figure in the city of London in his day and a benefactor of many good causes.He doesn't talk much about his early life and was only three when his father died but if I get the chance I'll ask.
