More Doggett’s...

Gary Anness (winner in 1982) who provided the commentary for the 2013 Race.

Tim Koch writes from London,

There are some nice images of the 299th Doggett’s Coat and Badge now online.

YouTube has a lovely video, which captures some of the spirit of the race:

The British Pathe archive has film of the last Royal visitor before this year. The Duke of Edinburgh, the Princess Royal’s Father, saw the race in 1951. The newsreel has a particularly ill informed commentary on the ‘Cap and Badge’ (sic).

There are some nice pictures on Flicker, with a page here and individual posts here, here, and here.

The official site was kind enough to link to my HTBS report.

Like Henley, the Doggett’s is one of those events where it is difficult to point a camera and not get a good picture.
