Brereton Sidinngs Signal Box

The first photo is another photo of Brereton Sidings signal box.

Edward Dorricott paid £2.50 for the photo and gave it straight to Barry Bull.

Edward Dorricott is the author of te recently published book on Duttons Signal Works, Worcester, in which Chasewater Railway Museum gets more than one mention.

This second photo has a couple of question marks hanging over it, which I hope we may get answers to.

‘Captain Midnight’ is a former naval officer named Glover, but we are not sure of his rank – possibly Lieutenant Commander or Commander.

Thank you Pete Styche for the following information:  GLOVER Gerald (Lt. Commander R. N. Rtd.) Passed away 12th October 2014 aged 76 years.

He was an occasional benefactor of the Railway, whenever he paid a visit there was always a donation in the box and maybe some good magazines donated.

The next question is who is his friend?

And finally, where was the photo taken?
