Dobbes, Reginald

A friend of Lord Popplecourt, who shared with him the shooting at Crummie-Toddie.

"...a man of about forty, strong, active, well-made, about five feet ten in height, with broad shoulders and greatly developed legs. He was not a handsome man, having a protrusive nose, high cheek-bones, and long upper-lip; but there was a manliness about his face which redeemed it. Sport was the business of his life, and he thoroughly despised all who were not sportsmen...." - The Duke's Children
