An Invited Friend of The Harrison Butler Association
Built by David Hillyard in 1966



Outcast : Fleet Street Boat
Outcast was owned for many years by Sir John Junior, former editor of the Sunday Express newspaper. A later owner was Brian Hitchen, also a former editor of the Sunday Express and, before that, the Daily Star. Restored in 1994 by Nicolas Dawson, Outcast is now based in Basse-Vilaine on the French Atlantic Coast.
I came across the postcard, reproduced below, on eBay. It's from Barfleur on the French North Coast, and dated 1977.
