The Diary in April

Herbert is now on the Home Front; Kut falls; and the Easter Rising in Dublin is noted.

April 1st – 8th

More Zeppelin raids. Wynne is in London while her husband organises things for his new Home Front job.

April 9th – 14th

Herbert becomes CRA Northern Army. The family remains in London, visiting a sand-bagged Westminster Abbey amongst other things.

April 15th – 23rd

Home again. Wynne worries about her brother, who is attempting to relieve Kut in Mesopotamia. Easter is also the 300th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death.

April 24th – 30th

The Easter Rising in Dublin; the fall of Kut in Iraq…two disasters in one week. But the hot weather means a picnic, and a hammock in the garden.
