Journals, 1906 - 1938

Reference Code: GBR/0272/RSM/1/1

Scope and Contents

The journals record day to day events and reflections on family, friends and relationships during chiefly the period of RSM's education at Bedales School and King's College, service in the Westmorland and Cumberland Yeomanry, including on the Western Front in 1918 and in co. Cork in 1919 and life in London after the First World War. Certain passages are annotated by RSM or [Arthur] Elliott Felkin in the course of subsequent reading. Assorted letters, photographs, school, university and West End play programmes and press cuttings are paper-clipped to the pages of several journals. In cases where this material had become detached, it is enclosed loose with the journal to which it relates. Dates given cover this additional material as well as journal entries.
