Sorrell and Thornton White met at the British School at Rome and collaborated together in 1930 on A hall for a Travel Agency and Banking Scheme, 1930 (collection of RIBA Library).  They developed a close friendship - in  letters written to Sorrell's wife in about 1944, he mentions his 'friend White' whom he wanted her to meet.
