A day out from Cliveden

Florence Vansittart Neale invited some local Belgian refugees to lunch at Bisham Abbey, and also hosted a day out for wounded soldiers from the British colonies being nursed at Cliveden.

8 October 1915
Had the 4 Belgians to lunch: M. Vandewerve & son & daughters. Then about 30 or more wounded from Cliveden came with Lady Boston. Australians & Canadians & New Zealanders. Much interested – most on Sir George. We kept 5 & sent them back. Saw death of Kenneth Mackenzie – awful.
