Back to the trenches

Florence Vansittart Neale recieved a letter from Frederick Septimus Kelly, a tenant and near neighbour of the Vansittart Neales, living at Bisham Grange. He was a remarkable figure, Australian born but educated at Eton and Oxford, who was an Olympic rowing medallist in 1908, a musician and composer, and a friend of the poet Rupert Brooke.He had been recently wounded, but it looks as if he was patched up and sent straight back to the Front.

13 June 1915
Letter from Sep. quite interesting. Made him straight, taken trenches.…

Russians successful again by the Dneister.
