Snippets – Wallpaper Heir to an Air Vice Marshall:
Ivan Couper Sanderson. the first owner of GLG69 was a scion of the Sanderson Wallpaper family; in 1860 his grandfather – Arthur Sanderson (1829/82) set up an agency importing luxurious French wallpapers - the foundation for the wallpaper & textile firm Arthur Sanderson & Sons Ltd. Within 20 years Arthur had opened his own wallpaper factory plus several retail outlets. after his death the family firm was taken over by his sons John. Arthur Jnr & Harold. by the turn of the 20th century the growth of the firm was such that their adverts in 1907 boasted the “Largest Wallpaper Showroom in the World”. Over the years Sandersons acquired various rival firms including Charles Knowles & Co & the William Morris archive of woodblock designs (Arts & Crafts). Sandersons designers included Christopher Dresser (1834/1904) best known for his silverwork & Charles Francis Annesley Voysey (1857/1941) an architect known for the simplicity of his designs. In May 1918 Ivan Couper Sanderson joined Nr 210 Squadron & before being wounded in September 1918 he claimed 11 victories & was awarded the DFC. After WWII Ivan joined his father & uncles at Sandersons & in 1924 he took control of the Uxbridge factory where he remained until his retirement in 1965. After owning GLG69 for just 4 years. Ivan traded her in for a Derby-Bentley (B11MX); we are unsure who the intermediate owner of GLG69 was but by 1958 the owner was Group Capt E. M. T. Howell (1913/2008). E. M. T. Howell joined the RAF in 1933 & he served in Egypt (1935/8) with 142 Squadron. In 1941 he was posted to Singapore & in 1943 after several months of living rough he was captured & held prisoner by the Japanese. He was not released until 1945 when he returned to the UK. he remained with the RAF until 1967 having achieved the rank of Air Vice Marshall.
