Hi, Martin, thanks for the link. A similar photo was published in the Badminton Magazine (May 1907), illustrating a long article on Desborough. Also if you get a chance to go through back issues of The Bystander for April and May 1906, there are several pictures of the British Olympic fencers, including Cosmo. One interesting one shows a match in progress with Cosmo playing a German competitor —— and easily picked out in the audience background are Edward VII and Alexandra (front row of course!). I would also like to add my thanks and good wishes to those expressed by my friends on another thread for all your very insightful posts.You were also a help to me in a crunch, supplying last minute research material, and I haven't forgotten that!

Although squished in order to fit it in, here's the image from Badminton Mag:
