When I first started working on Hambleton Hall I decided that the owner would be an Admiral. It helped focus the research if I kept that at the back of my mind.
At the end of 2008 I commissioned an Admiral's Hat with the idea of displaying it on a wooden head. The detail on the little hat is incredible. Margaret, The Mini Milliner even went to the trouble of copying the silver stitching and inscription inside as detailed on the picture I sent her.
Well, I've finally plucked up the courage (after all this time) to make a uniform to go with it. This uniform will stand in His bedroom on a mannequin.
