The Tatler 1930 - Spotting The Belvoir

Posted on 21st February 2016 in .  So far there are No comments

This caught my eye the other day, not least because of the headline that you wouldn't get away with in polite society in the 21st Century.

The image in the Tatler shows a meet of the Belvoir Hounds At Landyke Lane, Near Ab Kettleby, in the February 5th 1930 issue of The Tatler but it is the text which makes me realise that some things really don't change a great deal...

Rewritten to save your eyes:

Captions, clockwise from top left: 1. Lady Daresbury and Colonel W. J. Lockett. 2. General John Vaughan talking to Mrs Harry Beeby and her daughters. 3. A laughing matter: Lord Conyers, Miss Betty Manners, and Miss Gurdon. 4. The Hon. Victoria Erskine and Mrs Ronald Kaye (right)

"When the Belvoir concentrated at Landyke Lane the camera "found" as quickly as hounds subsequently did at Clawson Thorns. its quarry included several distinguished hunting persons, notably Lord Daresbury's wife, who is also renowned as a show ring adjudicator. Colonel W. J. Lockett and General John Vaughan, the controller of Craven Lodge, are two more Leicestershire regulars, and Mrs Beeby is the wife of that good sportsman, Mr Harry Beeby of Melton, who trains his own and his wife's steeplechasers. Miss Erskine and Miss Manners are respectively the only daughters of Lord and Lady Erskine and Lady Robert Manners. Lord Conyers was Joint Master with his Father Lord Yarborough, of the family pack, the Brocklesby, for three seasons, nut is now hunting almost entirely with the Belvoir."
