Catalogue Note

Horses were very important to the Hartleys, with Ernest Hartley taking part in a number of ceremonies as part of the Calcutta Light Horse. Hartley owned racehorses, including one named Kilbuck, which competed in the Grand National in 1931, and won at Fontwell Park and Wetherby in 1932.
