The Clermont Set

One of my favourite books has been Trail of Havoc: In the Steps of Lord Lucan, by Patrick Marnham.

Much is written about what became known as the Clermont Set, which included Jimmy Goldsmith and "Lucky" Lucan.

Interestingly, I believe that Sir James Goldsmith, in some way, has influenced me. I always "approved" of his dress style and sense - traditional Oxford grey flannel suits, understated; I even used to smoke the occasional Cuban cigar! Though I have since ceased this pastime.

I'm not a gambler, though.
