Ships lost, men wounded

Florence Vansittart Neale was briefly distracted from the bad news of the war by a visit from her daughter Elizabeth (Bubbles) and a nurse friend.

27 May 1915

Loss of “Triumph” in Dardanelles. Crew saved!! Also “Princess Irene”! Blew up in Sheerness. Many killed. French getting on….

Phyllis to fetch Bubs. Brought little Irish Sister… Girls played tennis…

Johnson & Saunders took Bubs back. Hospital quite full. Large convoy in – bad wounds.
