Letter from Matthew Booth:   "Dad's middle name"



Hello Diana,

With all your diligence and expertise I am surprised you never knew Dad's middle name. Anyway, as he was born just before Xmas his parents chose Noel as his middle. And an R never existed in Geeves. I think that may have arisen in a misspelling, or Dad adding it during an interview as he never liked the name Geeves... Thanks to PG Wodehouse!

Best rgds.
