    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.

    I'm actually surprise the family would sell it since it is part of their heritage and how proud the aristocrats are with family history. Is there another set of uniforms that the family kept?

    Hiya Guys, thanks for the kind comments.

    The family sold off her estate. I have all the FANY/ATS/WRAC uniforms. Do not know what happened to her SJAB uniforms from the post war era though?

    I believe her medals were not sold?

    Cheers, Lez
