    The man shaking Campbell's hand at 00:02 is one of his longest-serving engineers, Harry Leech.

    The record-breaking runs seen in this clip took place on 19 August 1939.

    Harry Leech, (mentioned in my earlier comment), was one of just 5 survivors of the R-101 airship disaster of 1930. He was also awarded the Albert Medal for rescuing another man from the burning wreckage.
