Jennie Pettit (née Hood) Year: 1955 Villages: HandcrossCol. Warren's prize-winning cattle
This picture was taken at the Sussex and Royal Counties Show at Horsham in 1955 and shows head stockman, Bill Baigent, owner Col. J Raymond Warren, with his wife, Eveline, of the Hyde estate, Handcross.
Important though those mentioned above might be, the star of the picture is the impressive bulk of “Handcross Knelle 44th”.
Select Open Document to view Colonel Warren’s first prize-winning cow, “Lock Knelle II”.
I believe the year to be 1953, but I can find no details of the show or where it took place. Nevertheless, the beast won the prize of 50 guineas for the best Sussex cow or heifer in the show.
Col. Warren also won the Campbell-Newington Silver Challenge Cup, value 15 guineas, for the best male and female yearlings bred by the exhibitor, and the Silver Medal for the best Sussex male.
