Thomas Gibbs and the 12th Duke of Bedford

Thomas Victor Gibbs (#6) accepting a prize for a winning Border canary from the 12th Duke of Bedford. This must have been taken before 9th October 1953 as the Duke died as a result of a gunshot wound then.
At another bird show, the third wife of the 13th Duke bought a canary from Thomas to keep in her bathroom!
