Diary sub-note: S. Mark
1915. Anzac Day
S.R. 5.44, S.S. 8.13
Went to the Mendip point-to-point. Nancy came back. It poured all day. Met Pony. Went to see “Peg of Old Drury”.
Diary footnote, accompanying a photograph of a Clumber Spaniel: THE CLUMBER SPANIEL. Perhaps the most ‘all-round’ gun-dog, and at one time the most popular ‘gentleman’s dog.’ Handsome, good tempered, capable of hunting and retrieving, and a model of steadiness, the only objection nowadays is that they are heavy, and consequently slow. Markings are always lemon or orange and white, with long feather on legs. They take their name from the Duke of Newcastle’s seat, Clumber Castle, where they were originally bred.
