I wonder if GBE ever shot driven in Britain. 

Just wondering. Facts would be interesting; opinions of little value.

Moonshine,

   That sir is a good question, having been invited more than a few times to eat dinner at Kay's table, where a lot of different conversations went on.  I never remember this subject coming up.  However GBE may have done some driven shoots with his good friend the Doctor, who gifted him his Purdey double gun.  IMO GBE probably did not participate in many driven shoots, simply because he like to hunt with his Ryman/Hemlock Setters all the time.

But, only opinion, no facts to speak of.

If Nash Buckingham ever shot driven, I don’t recall him mentioning doing so in what writings of his I’ve read.
