Pistols at dawn. Mr. John Barnard and Dr. Michael Carson faced each other in the crisp

Pistols at dawn. Mr. John Barnard and Dr. Michael Carson faced each other in the crisp Hertfordshire dawn on Sunday 5th October, ten paces apart and each armed with an antique duelling pistol. Honour was satisfied when Dr. Carson, 53, of Wimpole Street, was seen to be hit and blood welled up from beneath his strangely unmarked shirt for the second time when another volley of shots rang out. Mr. Barnard, 43, had demanded satisfaction some time ago when his wife DianaOs honour was besmirched by the dastardly doctor during a dinner table conversation. The protagonists arrived in horse-drawn coaches, dressed in black capes and top hats. Each had a second and a surgeon and referee were on hand to see fair play done. Dr. CarsonOs devilment brought him additional retribution from a masked lady who also emptied her revenge into his reeling body. Fortunately for all concerened, refreshments were available and the toast was Honour satisfied". Back to back. . . . . The deuellists prepare to shoot it out. October 1980 P004974
