My first foray into #sabrage

Kempton was a far cry from Cheltenham in terms of the quality of attire of those present, but nonetheless I donned tweeds, and my Lock & Co racing felt, which, once again, pleasingly caused me to remind myself of Monty Python's Upperclass Twit of the Year sketch.

I make a point of saving the green tweed suit for the countryside proper. Here I am yesterday in foggy West Sussex searching for the perfect country pub. Alas none of the three specimens we examined quite had that elusive quality of ideal rural hostelry we were looking for.

Also while in the area I visited my barber, Philip, at Briggs. He is now 93 years old!

I went along to Dashing Tweeds this afternoon and ordered a new three piece tweed suit. I spent a while leafing through their swatches (always a delight) but in the end chose the cloth Guy is modelling here, their "Iona" tweed.

Nice selection of portraits at the #ChapOlympiad  by the roaming professional photographers, including one of your humble servant.

The photographic evidence continues to arrive in dribs and drabs. Here you can just about see me making my first ever foray onto the actual stage at the #ChapOlympiad, having been roped into a supporting role of Champagne butler in a game of Not Playing Tennis. I was penalised by Tristan Langlois for use of foul language, which I feel rather guilty about in hindsight having only noticed upon seeing the photo there were two young girls standing just a few feet away. I blame it on stage fright, m'lud.

Thanks to Instagram I've been able to fill in some of the photographic gaps from yesterday, and am particularly pleased a stranger caught this shot of me hobnobbing with the inimitable Atters.
