Peter Lunn; He of the High Caste

 Peter Lunn - third from left

"He went on to serve as head of station in Bonn, and during the 1960s in Beirut, where he enjoyed skiing at The Cedars, a resort where, as he recalled, discipline in the lift queues improved dramatically after an attendant shot dead the two worst queue jumpers."

Absolutely classic line in a classic obituary of Peter Lunn in the Telegraph ; another of those high caste of gentlemen characterised by being mad as a box of frogs.
