The Guizer Jarl 1936 – Mr James W. P. Angus


Thomas took in a photo of his Great Grandad – Mr James W.P. Angus who was Guizer Jarl in 1936. He also took in a copy of the official programme from 1936. The programme was in black and white but it was great to see the colours of the Jarl’s suit in the photograph. The programme cost 2 pence in 1939, the 2016 programme cost £3.80! I think Thomas looks very proud of his Great Grandad, can you see a resemblance?

  1. Thomas that must mean so much to you

  2. It was very interesting to see he did not have a beard – who do you think he looks like Thomas?

    In 2036 it will be 100 years since my Grandad, Thomas’s Great Grandad and Eden’s Great Great Grandad was the Guizer Jarl. How old will you all be then?

  3. It looks a bit like you ante Vaila

  4. I think he looks a lot like Uncle Peter.
