Tubby Clayton

(1885-1972), Founder of the Toc H movement

Philip Thomas Byard ('Tubby') Clayton

Sitter in 16 portraits
Tubby Clayton was ordained in 1911 and volunteered as an army chaplain during the First World War. In 1915 he set up a rest-house - Talbot House - for troops travelling to and from the Ypres salient, which became known by its morse code call-sign 'Toc H'. After the War Toc H was refounded as a movement to teach the younger generation racial reconciliation and unselfish service.
