Dr Hugh Lamprey

He is to fly me over the game Migration tomorrow if Everest or F6 can spare him.’

describes Sandy Field

Cyril Connolly described Sandy Field as ‘an ex-provincial governor, an astringent Wykehamical civil servant who is excellent company. He could be head of a Cambridge college, or an unflappable chief secretary in an Edwardian comedy; he prefers people to animals (an amiable eccentricity) and seems a shade too Stendhalian for the brute creation which forms the bulk of his satray.’
