Left to clear the camp

Florence Vansittart Neale was involved in local attempts to deal with unemployment as a result of the war, while paying close attention to the war news. The Russian siege of Krakow, which is now in Poland but at the outset of the war was in the control of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, was to prove unsuccessful.

6 October 1914
I to meeting Maidenhead 6 o’clock. Women’s Unemployment Fund! Rather unclear.

Great victory of Russians – marching on Cracow [sic]. Naval Brigade gone to Dunkirk. Sep [a family friend] left to clear the camp!
