Reginald Kelbe Morcom (1877-1961)
Reginald Morcom achieved the rank of Lieut. Colonel during WWI. Following the war, Morcom was first employed by and then named chairman of BELISS AND MORCOM (a company which still exists to this day), producers of stationary steam engines, diesel engines, steam turbines, and compressors. Educated at Marlborough College, and then a graduate of Cambridge University, he had married the daughter of Sir Joseph Wilson Swan (inventor of the incandescent light bulb). He built a collection of Roman and provincial coins that formed part of the 14th Lugano auction by Rodolfo Ratto.
