Hi, I have the military medals and decorations won by Frank Staniford Thackeray, who, despite being an officer of the Highland Light Infantry, actually came from Cardiff. I would like to be able to obtain an image of the picture taken in 1931 to add to my archive of the man. It would not be reproduced in any publication. I have a large quantity of information and research on the man if this would be of any assistance to you.

Sometimes we have not recorded the date of a portrait. Do you have specialist knowledge or a particular interest about any aspect of the portrait or sitter or artist that you can share with us? We would welcome any information that adds to and enhances our information and understanding about a particular portrait, sitter or artist.
