  1. Hi again.
    Hubert William Gladman is one of “Nanny’s boys”. He is the tall one at back next to Alex. His younger brother Tom might be the one on the right. If I found out for sure I’ll let you know.


    1. Hi Annette,
      I’m sure Tom Gladman, Hubert’s brother is the unnamed man in the photo. I have few photos of him as a young man and it looks a lot like dad.

      Great work by the way.
