Cyril Herbert's portrait of the driver of this 'Battle of Britain' clas locomotive 'Sir Frederick Pile' was submitted to the Leica Postal Portfolio circle in 1948. It was well received, although some members of the group felt that too much attention was given to the locomotive number and that the driver's cap cast a shadow over his eyes.
