Default Photo of Roland King-Farlow?

Most of you have heard about this famous philatelist (1907-1974).
I need a photo of him but can't find one. Can any of you help, please?

If you recognise him, this may help?

Wouldn't one of the societies have a picture of him, perhaps the RPS?

Thanks much! The RPS don't have and not even his niece Susan Oliver in
UK have one - at least she can't find one.

I haven't asked the APS but I asked the editor at Linns (Michel
Baadke) but he hasn't answered back yet. I hope that Linns have a pile
of photos of famous philatelists.

I have never seen a photo of him but I'll show it to Susan. She can
recognize him for sure.

Thanks again :-)

If the racing club is still in existance, perhaps that might also be a
source.

It's amazing how many 'famous' people as nearly invisible. Having
problems with information about some of the Committee for the 1890
Penny Postage Jubilee!

Yes, I'll try that if Susan Oliver can't find her photo. She confirmed
that RK-F is the person in front. And she sometimes helped him but
that was "much more boring than looking at his stamp collection" :-)

Agree - it's a hard job to find all the people we would like to have
in our "book".

Thanks again for your kind help.

It's still there - but don't answer e-mails :-)
