Boodle, Captain 

A horsy friend of Archie Clavering, who advised Archie as to his wooing of Lady Ongar. Doodles became much interested in the “Russian spy,” Madame Gordeloup, and finally followed her to the continent.

"... wore a cut-away coat, a coloured shirt with a fogle round his neck, old brown trowsers that fitted very tightly round his legs .. a man with a small bullet head, who wore his hair cut very short and had no other beard than a slight appendage on his lower chin." - The Claverings
