Cap, British Railways (Western Region), Station Master, size 7 1/4, made by J. Compton, Sons & Webb Limited, 1961, issued to Mr. Bye, Ardley station, who it is believed used the cap to attract the attention of the driver of an up express who failed to stop at a red signal. The subsequent inquiry at Paddington established that the driver was in fact colour blind. [See file for more details].
