The file begins with correspondence regarding the possibility of Salisbury being employed by the Ministry. However his services were declined.
The rest of the file largely concerns a portrait by Salisbury of Boy Jack Cornwell. The IWM attempted to trace the original of this picture in order to obtain a loan or a copy. In addition, many enquiries were received about the picture. Correspondence includes an explanation of the signal depicted on the frame. The file includes an article from Lloyd's Weekly News about the story of Cornwell.
Further correspondence discusses the possible acquisition of a Salisbury portrait of Maud McCarthy for the Women's Section.
