The photograph, taken in the summer of 1968 by Henson, shows the classic bond between man and man’s best friend and was snapped when Sir Paul was in Saltaire, Bradford, recording ‘Thingumy’ and ‘Yellow Submarine’ with the Black Dyke Mills Band who were recording their first single under a new label.

An LPA has to be made while the person concerned (the ‘Donor’) still has the mental capacity to give their consent to handing over their affairs.
