Did you know that there was a De Laune Institute Harriers?

These photos were sent to Alured Faunce De Laune Esq, with their compliments in November 1893.

Dear Mike,

Please find enclosed 2 photos of Harry Thomas and I by the pool in his new home in Brisbane to which he has recently moved. You will note that in 1 photo he is wearing my De Laune hat.

He is keeping quite well and sends his regards to all who remember him.

He was the club captain when I joined the DL in 1959 and used to be the club runs leader. He still remembers with fondness Mrs Curds at Godstone and the Big Teapot at Biggin Hill. All you could eat for about 2/6d, no profit for them if Brian Saxton was around, and his favourite the Crown at Knockholt when there was the big room at the back, sadly now no longer habitable.

Regards John
