General Notes:In an eMail, dated, March, 7, 2002, Ian Thonger wrote:
One thing of recent note concerns the late Valerie Beere, my Mother's sister. She was an artist who specialised in portrait painting. In the early 1950's while living and working in London she painted a portrait of Sir Charles Alfred Howard, the Serjeant at Arms in the House of Commons, in his apartment within the Palace of Westminster. (I saw the painting in the apartment at that time.) However as neither he nor the House of Commons purchased the painting from her it remained in her possession and it was taken to New Zealand when she returned there to live in 1960. There it remained until I saw it in her house in 1997. In 1999 I wrote to my MP suggesting that the House of Commons might like to purchase the painting and this suggestion was subsequently approved by the the Speaker of the House of Commons, Betty Boothroyd. Some restoration work had to be undertaken on the painting prior to it being shipped to the UK, and it eventually arrived here in December of 2000, when I delivered it to the Curator of Fine Arts at the House of Commons, by which time Betty Boothroyd had retired and a new Speaker, Michael Martin, appointed. In May 2001 the Government called a General Election, and so the formal acceptance of the painting did not take place until the 30th October 2001. On that day the Speaker held a reception in his apartments, attended by himself, the current Serjeant at Arms, some MP's, staff from the Serjeant's office,and members of our family. The portrait was on display, prior to being hung permanantly in the Serjeant at Arms office. Unfortunately Valerie died in April 2000, before the painting left New Zealand, but I think she was aware that negotiations were in hand to sell the painting to the Palace of Westminster.

PS Yes the 'Serjeant at Arms' is spelt with a 'J' not a'G'!
