    I was delighted to find this short video on the Pathe news site as it shows my father conducting one of his choir boys in Peterborough Cathedral where he was Organist and Choirmaster for many years.

    In the corner it states his name simply as Dr Coleman - his full name was Richard Henry Pinwill Coleman. 1888 - 1965.
