A sad wife

Florence Vansittart Neale of Bisham Abbey had an active social life. Various friends were joining up in various capacities.

30 August 1914
Ken turned up en route for Abney – not had his call yet. Harold [Vereker] off to Aldershot this afternoon. Mrs [illegible – Serwold?] brought things made by her women for hospital. She looked so sad; her husband in 2nd battle. Maud M. came bringing young Baron Marscolti; he going on Sir J French’s staff. Told us about Italian ambassador informing Churchill to mobilize!
