40. The Bounder and Dangle discuss the imminent first 'meet' at Ashbourne
Just to remind you Edward Fay (aka The Bounder) was a journalist on the Clarion and member of its editorial board specialising in humorous accounts of his adventures – last heard of in our context appearing at its annual dinner after being roped in as President of the Birmingham CCC. Dangle (aka A M Thompson) was Blatchford's (aka Nunquam) partner in running the paper.
From Swiftsure's column of 13 April 1895. Dangle is upbraiding the Bounder about his latest jaunt.
Next time. 'Who's for Ashbourne this weekend?'
