So many war babies

William Baring Du Pre of Taplow (1875-1946) was MP for High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire, and a Territorial Army officer. It is not clear how his family was related to Mrs Lane.

6 November 1916

I to Taplow to see Mrs C Lane, just had baby at Du Pres. She depressed me dreadfully – so many war babies.
