Re the photos of David Somerset. I forget what year it was but I was looking out of the first floor window of Sotheby’s in Bond Street and saw him and Gianni Agnelli strolling up the street. Somerset who was (is still?) an art dealer and was an unofficial advisor to Agnelli. They were two of the most elegant guys I’ve clapped eyes on. Somerset I used to see often in the Mayfair area - usually wearing a tweed jacket and a “pilled” ancient shirt. Cracked Lobb brown brogues too.
I can only imagine. Thanks for sharing, messages like this are gold. Found some more pictures from 1984 at Chesterfield hospital and from 1979 at the Royal Badminton. Enjoy.
