Not A Penny in the Post
Not A Penny in the Post
  • Description

Not a Penny in the Post amounts to an autobiography of a remarkable figure for whom hunting, and hunting people, became a total way of life. From boyhood at his family farm in Tannington, this book follows his life’s story through his first Mastership on to his thirty years hunting with the Easton Harriers, with scandals, scrapes and crises of all kind along the way.

As the title suggests, times were not always easy, but those who knew Tony well will recall his extraordinary energy and ability to galvanise others into working with him while enjoying themselves at the same time. Readers will discover the pace of life he set himself and expected others to follow.

John ‘Tony’ Harvey was one of Britain’s best known countrymen, a farmer, engineer, raconteur and traditional singer. A Suffolk man who loved horses and hunting, he lived atTannington, and rode with every mounted pack in Britain during a lifelong love affair with hunting – a feat celebrated in his book If St Peter Has Hounds. He also hunted in France, South Africa and Russia. He was Master of the Easton Harriers Hunt for two periods, 1963–1968 and 1971–1989, and was out following the hunt the day before he died.He was also a member of the Masters of Harriers and Beagles Association, becoming President in 1985–1986. His untimely death in 2006 was a great loss to many, not least those in the world of carriage driving, hunting and farming. He was a wonderful character and true countryman.
