First published forty years ago, Gentlemen's Gentlemen gives an insight into the golden age of service - a profession now almost completely lost.
You've read tales of lady's maids and cooks, housekeepers and nannies, but now it's time to hear from the other side of life as a servant. From the lamp boy to the butler, here are the fascinating storis from the men below stairs.
This treasure-trove of memories, collected together by Rosina Harrison, bestselling author of The Lady's Maid, includes the night the ill-fated Edward VIII came to dinner; the time Charlie Chaplin scandalised the servants with his 'familiar' behaviour - and the occasion when a hot potato dropped down a lady's decolletage at a veryexclusive supper party . . .
