Fir­ing the canon

Country Life Every Week - - Letters To The Editor -

ON the theme of sport­ing church­men (Let­ters, Fe­bru­ary 22), I was once vis­it­ing a rec­tory in Dorset at which our host, a canon, ar­riv­ing late and in muddy hunting kit, apol­o­gised for be­ing de­layed by his bishop, but an­nounced he could ful­fill a longheld am­bi­tion by telling us ‘the canon has been fired’.
