Reg Polstead's brother was the innkeeper at La Belle Sauvage, a pub in Richmond. His brother Reg was also an innkeeper and his nephew Malcolm Polstead named his canoe La Belle Sauvage after the pub. The pub's sign was of a beautiful lady who had done something brave.[2]


Notes and referencesEdit

  1. The way Malcolm spoke to Hannah Relf in La Belle Sauvage, Chapter 5 suggested that his uncle may no longer have been an innkeeper by that time or even that he was dead.
