The Quiet Hero

© 2015 John Handley
A Book in Everyone and in some, more than one
The Story of C. W. Dyson Perrins 1864-1958 What a story this turned out to be.  This book tells of how Dyson carried forward the business of Lea & Perrins Worcestershire Sauce, becoming soldier, businessman, public servant, astute collector and a most generous philanthropist for Worcester, Malvern and the nation.  In the 1930s he rescued Royal Worcester Porcelain from insolvency and then went on to establish the City’s Porcelain Museum that today preserves the record of over two-hundred and fifty years of craftsmanship that would otherwise have been lost.  Read about the man who became the saviour of Worcester Porcelain.  All of this done without show or publicity - the Quiet Hero.
