BA Uttley (Moretons 19913) commissioned composer Ben Hollway (The Knoll 19883) to create a moving and original classical music single to raise money for Remembered, the charity behind the There But Not There campaign to commemorate the centenary of the World War One Armistice. inspired by British and irish Lions’ remembrance of war veterans during their tours, the orchestral single, There But Not There, was performed by the City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra and conducted by acclaimed Welsh conductor Owain Arwel Hughes CBE. Ben is also directing and producing a documentary series about the world’s ﬁrst circumnavigation of the globe in an original and unique Spitﬁre in a project called The Silver Spitfire – The Longest Flight. The journey will take the adventurers to over 30 countries and cover over 27,000 miles and many of the world’s most famous landmarks from the Grand Canyon in the west to the snow-capped peak of Mount Fuji in the east. The Spitﬁre is a Uk treasure and an emblem of freedom across the globe. The Silver Spitﬁre expedition will promote the ‘Best of British’ worldwide, showcasing the nation’s heritage in engineering excellence and an aircraft that changed the course of history. The Spitﬁre embodies not only a pinnacle in aerospace engineering and design but commemorates a generation of intrepid aviators prepared to stand up to oppression and make the ultimate sacriﬁce in pursuit of freedom. The expedition will reunite the Spitﬁre with the many countries that owe their freedom, at least in part, to this iconic aircraft. in the grand tradition of exploration, the team will challenge themselves by setting out to complete a trip that has never been attempted.

HJ de C Prideaux (Bradbys 19923) is an interior designer who studied Art Foundation at Chelsea College of Art and Design before gaining a degree at Trinity College Dublin. Returning to London, Henry dedicated several years to learning his craft at interior design studios including that of celebrated designer, nicky Haslam, before setting up his own practice in 2014. in 2018, Henry was invited by the organisers of leading interior design exhibition, Decorex international – the show of choice for the luxury interior design market, to create a vignette at the main entrance, within the theme ‘Blank Canvas’, to represent his story and the memories and inﬂuences that inspired him to become an interior designer. Henry drew on his time at Harrow, where he styled his room each term using drapes and rugs to create more comfortable spaces with added personality and creativity. it was during this chapter that an instinct to decorate began evolving, leading to a professional career in interior design. Taking inspiration from Harrow’s imposing architecture and the School’s colours and uniform, Henry’s installation was a modern take on these traditional elements, resulting in a beautiful design full of detail, texture and colour.
