Wynne's Diary

<< Close page
The titlepage from Wynne's 1898 diary. At the back of the first diary, which runs from 1895 to July 9th 1897, she writes that she is beginning a new book with a lock. This she apparently finished in March 1898, but it no longer exists. In it she probably poured out her heart about Charles, and it may have been this that led to the action her mother took later in 1898.
As you can see, she commences with a warning to the public - I hope she will forgive me!
During 1898, Charles was serving in Sierra Leone, another small colonial war that went largely unnoticed. Wynne cut out the newspaper article that mentioned an action he was in, during which time he was wounded. You can read about this in the next window...
