Photographed in Bayswater, London, where he moved to in 1935, shortly after composing Cortèges (1945) during two weeks sick leave as a soldier. Published in Lilliput, September 1946. The accompanying text describes Rawsthone; 'He has no apparent musical snobbery, and has successfully tried his hand at works for large and small instrument combinations, for ballet and films'.
