On the left is my uncle Frank Hyde who was an English artist who exhibited several paintings at the Royal Academy, and was a war artist in the Crimean Campaign.

Many people have assisted me in creating a virtual gallery of his paintings, and I now have an illustrated record of over fifty.



Illustrated is my uncle Robert Henderson Bland.

Captain Robert Henderson Bland was associated with some of the greatest actors and actresses on the British stage.

He played the role of Christ in the film "From the Manger to the Cross," a film he regarded as the greatest work of his life.

It was Beerbohm-Tree who recommended him to play the part, saying that the only man who could play "Christ" was a poet.



My maternal grandfather 'Frank' Hudleston, Chevalier of the French Legion of Honor, CBE, MBE, was the War Office Librarian.

He is best known for his book "Gentleman Johnny Burgoyne" on the English General who lost the American War of Independence.



My son, Adam Hyde, is a new media artist, with a special interest in streaming media, in both visual and audio contexts.

One of the projects he was involved with, was the creation of free manuals on how to use free software.
