UK: HILLSDOWN BOSS HARRY SOLOMON ALLOWS PHOTOS AFTER RECEIVING KNIGHTHOOD.

UK: HILLSDOWN BOSS HARRY SOLOMON ALLOWS PHOTOS AFTER RECEIVING KNIGHTHOOD. - Sir Harry Solomon, newly-knighted boss of Hillsdown Holdings, was not unnaturally proud of being honoured by the Queen, so proud that he broke an old Solomon rule.

Sir Harry Solomon, newly-knighted boss of Hillsdown Holdings, was not unnaturally proud of being honoured by the Queen, so proud that he broke an old Solomon rule.

Photographs were taken and distributed to the press.

Horror of horrors! Sir Harry woke up realising that his valued privacy would be forever compromised: the man who never let a photographer into his AGM would be reappearing in any newspaper which had the sense to tuck the picture in its photo library. Even Management Today, which had been forced to use a picture of a tray of meat (depicting Hillsdown products, naturally) in an article on the company, would now be able to use a picture of the elusive Sir Harry.

Quick as a flash, Sir Harry had the pictures recalled. All but one we hope. A bottle of champagne awaits the sender of the first picture of Sir Harry to reach us.
