The Ordeal of the Unfinished Adventures: Percy F. Westerman and Angela Brazil Caption Contest

by Russell Olson

Using illustrations from the novels of Percy F. Westerman (OP  1890-94) and his contemporary, Angela Brazil, the library challenges pupils, staff and parents to a caption contest.

Library and common room spaces will be stocked with competition entry forms containing 8 illustrations (which can be viewed below) chosen to challenge your creativity. You may also request a PDF entry form by emailing 

For pupils in Year 7 and 8 please create a caption for one of the eight images.

For pupils in Year 9-13, staff members and parents, you may enter using only one image or increase the level and use two images (see the example on the entry form) to create a sequential narrative.
You may enter the competition by dropping off your entry to the Main Library or by emailing it to

Competition closes on Monday, the 27th of November. To read more about Percy F. Westerman, see PGS Archivist, John Sadden's, article in the Portmuthian
