Regular readers may recall the post reporting the local newspaper articles recording the passing of Reg Holmes and his friendship with T. E. Lawrence. Last Friday I attended an event of the Northwich Folk Club. Reg Holmes was a stalward and popular member of the Club. I met Reg's friends at the Club seeking further information and leads to try to discover more details of his friendship with Lawrence. I got hold of the Folk Club's Summer 2010 newsletter containing tributes to Reg Holmes by his friends.
Also I have written to the Executors of Reg Holmes Estate, Rowlinsons Solicitors of Frodsham, to see if they come across any Lawrence related letters, photographs or artifacts which survive. Will see.
