Robin McLaren (H 51-55) recently wrote a letter to The Times which was published and we quote it here:

Make it a double

Sir, Further to the discussion about champagne at breakfast (letters, Dec 6-8), in the sixties Victor Lanson of the Lanson champagne house told me that a magnum — the equivalent of two bottles — was the appropriate size bottle for a gentleman breakfasting alone.
Robin McLaren
Berkhamsted, Herts

Robin said that he had never forgotten that quote and the topic has generated quite a lot of fun discussion.

It is a perfect topic to discuss as we wish you all a very Happy New Year.
