Tallest landlord (6ft. 3in.) has taller successor
For nineteen years the landlord of the Buck’s Head, Mitcham, has been Major W. H. Poole, who, standing 6ft. 3ins. tall, was the tallest licensee in the district.

Yesterday the license was transferred to Mr. W. Langham, of Battersea, who is 6ft. 4 1/2 in., a former amateur boxer and film actor.

Both men are retired policemen.
