Lord Overton started it by declaring that Davidia was a ridiculous name, not realising it was Lord Laketon’s wife’s name. Laketon threw his glass of port at Overton, but missed. Lord Everidge slipped on the spillage, hitting his head on the door and knocking the Duke of Hampshire into Sir Henry, who swung a punch which missed Hampshire but knocked Laketon out cold. By the time the police arrived, everyone was unconscious… except Overton, who was singing Swagger Jagger.
