    Notes 
    • "Mother was alone trying to keep the family home going in London during WW II, so there was always a welcome for anyone coming on leave. Our house 'Glenlea', in Dulwich was quite a large one and at one time had about 50 large window panes blown out by bomb blast, but luckily we did not suffer any severe damage.
      "Edith was in the Women's Voluntary Service [W.V.S.], later the Women's Royal Voluntary Service, in which she served throughout the war. This was a purely civilian organisation ready to help in a practical way at any emergency, but they were not officially nurses.
      "The family's first car was a Wolseley Hornet, circa 1934. Edith was the driver." writes Mary WICKES [6]
