Charles Stewart Rolls became interested in flying after he had already founded Rolls-Royce in 1904. Though the badge is indistinct this balloon may be his 'Midget'. In 1910 Rolls was killed in an aeroplane accident.
 
Mrs. Assheton Harbord owned her own balloon (Nebia) and was a dedicated aeronaut, crossing the Channel a number of times.
