- Clothing item I couldn’t live without: (shooting related) Hard to pick but it would be between my favourite tweed cap and my green Purdey shooting shirts
- Favourite way to spend a Sunday: In summer; watching our two sons play cricket. In winter; a good pub lunch.
- My last meal would be served in a lunch hut on a particular Grouse moor, at the end of a day spent with family and friends. It would start with Dublin Bay Prawns, then roast Grouse, finishing with vanilla ice cream. Then a long walk back down the hill with everybody and my dog Yogi!
