With thanks to George Simmers, who decoded the initials.

A rare photo of VCC-B, at the BBC, and obviously staged!


V(ictor Vaughan Reynolds Geraint) C(linton) Clinton-Baddeley was born in Budleigh-Salterton, Devon. He received an M.A. in history from Jesus College, Cambridge. For a time he was editor of the modern history section of the Encyclopaedia Britannica, but soon turned to theatre and acting and then to radio, where he worked with W. B. Yeats as his poetry reader. His other writings include works of literary and theatre research, pantomimes, operettas, and plays. There’s a link to VCC-B here in a description of amateur theatricals in Budleigh Salterton at http://budleighbrewsterunited.blogspot.co.uk/2012/04/mystery-of-early-budleigh-theatre-show.html
