God rest Debo.

It took old Redesdale seven tries – well, six and a half: Nancy had her good points – but he finally got it right. The only wholly decent Mitford of that generation, really.

Today, adding:

And God rest and grant mercy to CJH Hogwood CBE. A sore loss.

Oh no! I've been buried in work and missed the news! She was my favourite, so wonderful with horses and chickens! And lovely gardens. I hope she and Paddy are having a lovely glass of something very nice with their respectives.
