Apart from the OBE I have no idea what all the letters after his name stood for but were obviously important enough to be mentioned. This is a picture of PR that was in mum's book and although it has not come out all that well I think it shows him quite clearly:
In more informal pictures he sent from England these shows PR enjoying himself at the beach on two different occasions, once alone and once with an acquaintance. I love that first picture and don't you just love those stoney beaches they have in parts of the UK? Unfortunately I have no idea just when these photographs were taken or sent to mum as I can't find the originals (these were also copied from her book):
These photographs were possibly taken at Eastbourne as that is where my grandfather's home was.
