Found what might be a Disabled Soldiers Embroidery Industry design by Ernest.  He made a lot of designs for the men to work, and this seems very much in his style.

I thought you all might enjoy this photo of Ernest and Janette, c. 1935.  It was provided by Janette's great-nephew, and was part of his father's photo collection (the photograph collections of Robert RF Bruce DFC, nephew of JMFT):



Another photo, of Janette possibly from her pre-marriage actress days, is on this page:  http://ernestthesiger.org/Ernest_Thesiger/Family_of_Choice.html

There are other updates to the website, but no new embroidery.  Smiley

Casual wear or dressed to the nines, that man looked elegant whereas most people put on casual wear and we look, well, casual.

That's so cool that you found the book! Books, needlework, and history. Three of my most favorite things!
