Who Founded Umbro?

From working out of the back room of their parents pub to working out of stock rooms. It was in 1930 that Umbro opened their first factory to meet with customer demand.
Where does the Umbro name come from?
Umbro is a portmanteau (blended word) that derives from the 'Um' in Humphrey's, the founders surname, and 'Bro' from Brothers (the relationship bewteen the two founders Harold and Wallace).
In 1935 Umbro released their first brochure. It was called the Umbrochure, which might well be the best name ever conceived for a brochure!
