Sydney Yeoman (b 1876-d 1948)

Started work in the case department in 1885, then moved on to bows and was apprenticed to William Napier.

Volunteered for the army in 1914, and returned a different man, shell shocked and broken.

He became diabetic and lost an eye, eventually in 1930 took charge of the less experienced bow makers.

His bows for Hill have a single nick in the lower mortise.
