Found 19th Jan 2013
125 years of quality, value and choice began in 1888 when young watchmaker and jeweller Thomas Henry Baker formed the business. The first store was established at 95 High Street, Brierley Hill and remains open today. The early years of T. H. Baker set a precedent, prospering during the ‘Golden Age’ of Victorian jewellery; at this time, the wearing of rows of brooches and heavy gold guards and bracelets was at the height of fashion and sales reflected this. At the turn of the century, Thomas Baker’s only son Reginald joined the business, giving it a fresh perspective as it moved into its second decade.... Learn more about T. H. Baker’s history in Part 2, available next month.

What was the name of Thomas Henry Baker’s son?

Answer : B: REGINALD

I did get after submitting. You have already entered.
You need to be aware that I received the same message in February and March as well. I've contacted them on the website, then on Facebook (via private message and on public). After weeks, they've replied but still not offering a solution. And there's no prize listed for this month yet....a bit odd.
