This image was 'lost' for a while, but I found it again last week. It was part of my childhood, hanging on the wall at home. The date on the back say 20 November 1940, which is most likely the date on which Uncle Oliver had it printed. The photographer was Vernon Henry Neelan Cox, of Yundah Street, Shorncliffe. It appears that he was a talented amateur, as his occupation is given as Salesman in the electoral rolls of the time.

Resolute was Great Uncle Albert's beloved Linton Hope Rater, and it won many trophies and pennants over the years.

    Hello Geoff

    I wonder if I could ask for your help. I'm writing a feature on Linton Hope, and came across your great photo of Resolute. I wondered if I might have permission to use it in my feature. Delighted to credit accordingly and will send you a copy of the feature if of interest. My email: plondon73@aol.co.uk and by an odd coincidence I'm located just a few miles from West Penwith, in Falmouth.

    I hope you don't mind me contacting you 'out of the blue', and look forward to hearing from you.

    Best wishes
    Pete London
