Tamesis Club

Tamesis member captured by pirates

Tamesis member Brian Harper-Lewis was captured by pirates on the early afternoon of Monday 4 May.  He reported that he was forcibly obliged to sit in a boat with a glass of wine in his hand while he was taken away for the whole of the afternoon and incarcerated at the Anglers.

Brian, who lives on Trowlock Island just downstream of the Tamesis Clubhouse, said there were 20 of the blighters “including assorted mini-pirates cunningly disguised as children of the friends we’d been skiing with” who plied him with three “or possibly four” pints of London Pride.
