I was staying in Henley on Thames Oxon in 1965 and literally bumped into a guy at the Red Lion. He took me in a Rolls Royce to his club in London -Danny La Rue`s and I had the most amazing night out. He was the perfect gentleman and drove me back to the White Hart Hotel where I was staying and just drove off into the night. I was later told he was Lance Reventlow. Would you know if he was living in Henley then? Many thanks Harry Dunn PS.I asked him who he was,but he said it didn`t matter.

My mother dated Lance Reventlow breifly. Although Reventlow is not my father, my mother nonetheless named me after him, and not because she was fixated on him, she just liked the name.
