Complimentary Dinner to J P Hilton, Esq, CBE - 1935
The caption to the original photograph reproduced here is exactly as the title shown above. As J P Hilton's CBE award was first noted against his name in the 1934 Annual Report, it is likely that this dinner was held to celebrate that honour, and it is also most likely to have been the occasion on which a portrait was unveiled of the Bank's first General Manager.
The diners are in the newly opened (1933) Broad Street Head Office's Assembly Room.
