The compiler has received an e-mail from Andrew Smith,
whose father, WO1 Frederick Aaron Smith, Royal Signals, served with Major Etienne Boileau, while in the HQ Sudan Defence Force at Khartoum and elsewhere in the Sudan (where he apparently held the local rank of Lt.-Col). He writes - (9/7/2003):
"I actually met (Colonel Boileau) once or twice but I was very small and memories are vague. My Mother remembers him too, including him visiting my father in Chester and (probably early sixties) Hitchin, Hertfordshire. She says they had a great mutual respect and had worked together for a long time. Despite this, she never heard my father call him anything other than Colonel and he always called my Father "Mr. Smith". I would be grateful for any snippets you have that shed light on my father's own career. He was probably a sergeant/staff sergeant at the time."

Charles Hallowes was known to his friends as “Chukka”. David Hamilton was one of the family on the neighbouring estate; they moved to Australia in 1969. He writes:
“I clearly remember ‘Chukka’ Hallowes children, Charles, James, Ian, Walter and Patrick and their mother Jessie although I thought there was a girl as well but could be mistaken. They used to come over to our estate and swim in the pool and I was always rather shy of so many noisy kids jumping and diving and running rampant through the grounds! I remember being fascinated with their father’s Rolls, an old soft top with a ‘dickie seat’ at the back! I think they also had a VW Kombi for ferrying around the children. My mother would often remark on how Jessie managed to cope with such a ‘tribe’ during school holidays but I’m sure a suitable arrangement was worked out because on the other side of Luingera Estate (where they lived) was another large family, the De Scossa’s who had about 8 children I think!”
(Note that these children are from Charles Hallowes second marriage).

The founding president of RSME? None other than a member of The Hallowes family! I took pictures of what I saw today. “Lord Northesk” is the bald-headed gentleman depicted ear the centre of this caricature, and the board with his name as the founding president.
I bet he didn't think that his first cousins twice/three times removed would be enjoying a pleasant day there today!”

[CFIA/1] GEOFFREY WILLIAM DIMBLEBY
b. 27/5/1917, s. of Thomas M. Edward Dimbleby of The Laurels, Hanley Swan, Worcs., by Hilda Swift. d. of Amos Dipper of Sheffield. The family were then living in Newcastle on Tyne, later moving to Cheltenham. Educ. at Northfield Sch. Ipswich; Marling Sch. Stroud; Cheltenham GS, then Magdalen Coll., Oxford, where he read Botany. B.Sc, 1941; MA 1943. During WW2 he served in the RAFVR, where he met his wife. Pilot Offr. Feb. 1941; Flying Offr. July 1941; Flt.Lt. Nov. 1941; Sq. Ldr. Nov. 1942. Much of his war service was spent in the interpretation of aeriel photographs, which towards the end of the war led into the hunt for V1 and V2 launch sites. He was twice mentioned in Despatches.
He returned to Oxford in 1945, and in 1947 became a Lecturer in Forest Ecology. In 1964 he was appointed Professor of Human Environment at the Institute of Archaeology (in London); the family moved to St. Albans.
During his academic career Geoffrey Dimbleby pioneered the use of soil pollen analysis to provide information on the development of soils and vegetation, and on the impact of early peoples on the environment. In his D. Phil. thesis of 1950, he demonstrated that soil pollen surviving especially in acid soils provided a degree of stratification and hence some indication of vegetation history. One of his many studies showed that until the Bronze Age the area of the North York Moors was covered with deciduous forest, and its transformation to today's heather moorland is the result of human influence since that time. Some of his most interesting discoveries were made by sampling the virgin soil beneath the lowest level of Bronze Age earthworks. In his books he stressed the necessity for archaeologists and ecologists to learn from each other. He served on numerous official bodies, including the Ancient Monument Board's committee for rescue archaeology. In 1977 he was elected a Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries, and awarded an honory doctorate by St. Andrew's University. He retired in 1979.
His academic career was paralleled by his work for a range of charitable organisations. In Oxford he was the Chairman of Oxfam. Both there and in St Albans he was an Elder and Church Secretary of the United Reform Church; he chaired the St. Albans Council of Churches, and attended World Council of Churches meetings of scientists and theologians. During the 1960s he chaired the first Churches Commission on the Environment. When his wife was stricken with muliple sclerosis he became involved with fundraising for research into the disease.

[DHFCA] John, b. c. 1942.
Dave Edwards, now of New Zealand,(e-mail: email@example.com)writes:
I was born in 1939 and up to the age of about 20, I lived with my parents
and brother at 33 Alleyn Park, Norwood Green, just two houses away from
where the Turners lived. They moved into the house at number 37 when I was
in my teens, I believe. The previous owners had the name Jameson (maybe
Jamieson or similar). My brother and I had quite a lot of contact with John, the adopted son; he was about the same age as by brother so he would have been born around 1942. I
remember spending Guy Fawkes night at the Turner's and having potatoes baked
in the embers of the bonfire. I also remember sampling Mrs Turner's
I can't remember the name of the school that John went to; it certainly wasn't either of the ones which I and my brothers attended; I believe it may have been some sort of private school. We lost contact in our late teens. I believe Joan Turner
died around this time and I think John and his father moved from the area.
I heard that John joined either the Navy or Merchant Navy but I
have no idea if he is still alive or where he might be. I would certainly be interested in

THE CHILDREN OF THOMAS HALLOWES VAUGHAN AND ELSIE VAUGHAN née PIPER.
[DJAA] RICHARD THOMAS VAUGHAN
b. 28/5/1908 at Mazatlan, Mexico. Educ. at Repton and Clare College, Cambridge; B.A. A noted sportsman, he achieved his Blue for Soccer and captained the College team in his final year . After leaving Cambridge he worked for Shell for a while, then in 1935 purchased Middle Farm, Winterbourne Monkton which was his peacetime home for the rest of his life.
On 11/1/1940 he enlisted in the R.A.S.C. EC 2/Lt, 27/4/1940. WS Lt. & T/Capt., 19/3/1941. At the end of January 1942, in one of the most shameful episodes of the war, the 18th. Division to which his unit belonged was diverted from the Middle East to Singapore. The Division was given nothing to do and a few days after arrival was obliged to surrender to the Japanese with the rest of the garrison.
After some time in Changi Jail he was sent to work on the infamous Burma Railroad, of which it was said that a man died for every track sleeper which was laid. This project, for which there was a real strategic need, was damned by the manic inability of the Japanese to look beyond their own preconceptions of racial superiority and the tactical needs of the moment. More than a few returning prisoners have said that, treated properly and allowed to organise themselves, they could have built the Japanese their railroad and made a fair job of it. As it was they were starved, tortured and abused, and died in thousands. After the war the entire scheme had attracted such odium that it was abandoned to the Jungle. A few Japanese were fully aware of the sheer stupidity of what was going on, but for the most part they never rose beyond the level of the homicidal, hysterical subalterns who terrorised the Japanese Political and Military hierarchies during the '30s. And it should be recalled that the locally recruited workers, promised fair wages and good rations - volunteers all - were treated as badly if not worse.
Early in his captivity Captain Vaughan encountered his brother in law, John Austin Dickson, and the two endured the rest of the war together, the one supporting and covering for the other when sick or injured. This was a common pattern among those prisoners on the railroad who survived.
He was liberated in 1945 and returned to his farming, playing cricket through the summer and shooting through the winter. He was also a J.P., a churchwarden, the Chairman of the local branch of the National Farmers' Union and of the Conservative Party. But he never fully recovered from his wartime experiences, and after a series of heart attacks had to give up farming in 1963. He died 1/4/1966.
He married, 14/4/1937:
[DJAA/1] BLANCHE INNES DICKSON
b. 8/4/1913 at Kataboola, Kotmale, Ceylon, d. of A.J. Austin of Newbury by Norah Scrope, d. of Scope Hutchinson of Southwell, Notts (a family closely connected to the Minster).

She was educ. from home, and in 1936 went out to Ceylon for a holiday with her brother (John Austin D., see above); on the return she was on the same ship as Richard (they had met briefly some years earlier) and were married once back in England.

[HBBC] JUDITH FELICITY TURNEY ARMSTRONG.
Born 21/10/1907 in Liverpool. Always called “Felicity”, or “Felix” to a very few close friends. Educ. South Liverpool School for Girls; Belvedere High School (1917); then (after a year with a Governess) Cheltenham Ladies College (1921). Hurdled for her House (Bunwell). For her early family life see “My Brother Denys”. In 1927 she went to Paris for some six months; from this time dates her friendship with Edward Halliday RA who later painted her. During most of her life she gave French lessons to students needing extra tution before exams. In 1929 and 1930 she cruised in the Mediterranean on SS Ranchi and Ranpura to Constantinople and Naples and nearly married one of the ship's officers!
Her connection with the Guide Movement started while she was still in Liverpool where she was a Guider Lieutenant; later she had her own Company at Edghill. During the 50s.she was District Commissioner for Gedling. Her Guide experiences gave her material for her children's novel 'The Oakhill Guide Company' published by Blackie in 1933 and reprinted in the 50s. for which she received the princely sum of £40.
After her parents separated she lived with her mother, including a whole year at Trearddur. She followed her on her perambulations first to The Hall Farm East Stoke, next to The Manor House, Bramcote, then in 1937 to Bulcote Lodge from where she was married in l940. In 1939 she had done the Montessori Diploma at the Convent of the Assumption, and was offered a permanent position with them; but her mother asked her to stay with her, and then HJBA proposed.
During the war she was most occupied by bearing children and trying to be as close to HJBA as possible; she also helped sort out evacuees in the early years. Before GKA was born she had miscarried at the time of Dunkirk. On one occasion while staying at the Cross in Hand, Mansfield, parachutists (bomber crew?) were sighted and she rushed out of the door with GKA under one arm. JMA when she arrived cried all the time.
She was received into the Catholic Church in 1934 and was a member of many Catholic organisations including the C.E.G. and the Newman Association of whose Nottingham Branch she was for a time Branch Secretary. She was awarded the Papal Medal 'Bene Merente' in 1975.
After Hilary died she moved to 30, The Spinney, Bulcote, less than half a mile from "Oaklands" where for eight more years from her friendly and peaceful home she continued to be an inspiration, solace and example to all who knew her.
On Friday May 16th. 2003 her current French pupil arrived at her house for her lesson, to be told that Felicity had just died. While receiving treatment at the Queen's Medical Centre, Nottingham she had had a cardiac arrest and passed away, probably without recovering consciousness, early on Thursday the 15th.
She married, in a khaki wedding at the Church of the Sacred Heart, Carlton, on a bitterly cold day in January 1940:
[HBBC/1] HILARY JOHN BRADLEY ARMSTRONG
Born: 7/10/1910 at Culloden, Edwinstowe, Notts., second son of Frank Armstrong, Solicitor, of Bryan and Armstrong (Mansfield) and his wife Phyllis, daughter of Micah Gedling Bradley of Mansfield. Educated at Ovingdean (nr. Brighton 1919-24) and then Rugby 1924-28. where he was in the 1st.XV for his last two years. After leaving school he played rugger for several leading Notts. teams, often teamed with his elder brother Philip. He joined the British-American Tobacco Co. in 1929, but was axed in 1932 because of the Depression. He then took articles in his father's firm and qualified as a Solicitor 1937. Just before the outbreak of war he joined the Nottingham firm of Acton, Simpson and Hanson
He had joined 8th.(TA) Bn. Sherwood Foresters 1936 and by 1938 was a Captain. On the outbreak of war the 8th. was split down the middle and he went to the new 9th. as a Company Commander; by luck or by judgment a very wise move, as the 8th. went to Norway in 1940 and very few if any came back. The 9th. went to France as an L.of C. battalion. in 1940. They moved forward from training areas in Brittany into Belgium (Alost) in May. From there they joined the retreat of the B.E.F. to Dunkirk: and HJBA personally led his company into the sea and was evacuated from the beaches on a paddle steamer. His Bn. went to Scotland (Haddington) and he transferred to 139 Bde. HQ (part of 46 N.Midland Div).as Staff Captain(Q). He spent the rest of the war as a Staff Captain, one of the vital but inconspicuous many who served from the first day of the war to the last and beyond. 1941 Administrative Staff Course in Oxford. (He later confided to GKA that this was a mistake and that he might have made his way back to the Battalion if he'd played his cards differently.) Staff Captain (Q) to the North Sussex Sub-Area in various locations including Michelham Priory. 1942(?) 46 Reinforcement Holding Unit, Sub-Unit Commander, then Adjutant. Went to France with the unit in 1944 and finished the war with them in Germany. Major (acting) (?) 1944: Mentioned in despatches 1945. Demobilised 1945. Territorial Decoration.
After the War the family lived first at 39 Old Main Road Burton Joyce and then (1950) The Oaklands, Bulcote. Hilary eventually became Senior Partner at Acton's before retiring in 1989. He became a Catholic in 1947; this, he later wrote, with marrying Felicity, were the two wisest things he ever did in his life. He was for many years active in the local Conservative Party and served a term as a County Councillor. His greatest interest after his family was gardening; the Oaklands gardens were large, and he won many prizes in local horticultural shows.
Soon after the joyous celebration of their Golden Wedding in 1990 it became apparent that Hilary had contracted Alzheimer's disease. He eventually lost all memory except of his childhood, but was still able to go on working in his garden almost to the end. Soon after Christmas 1994 he broke his arm in an accident at home; in hospital his physical condition collapsed very quickly and he died five days after Easter Sunday 1995.
They had five children:
[HBBCA] Giles Keith b. 5/10/1941
[HBBCB] Judith Mary b. 16/6/1943
[HBBCB/1] Bernard O'Shea. b. 28/8/1946

[HBBCE/1] Owen Thomas Morton b. 9/2/1951
[HBBD] NICHOLAS JOHN TURNEY MONSARRAT
b. At Rodney St., 22/3/1910. Educ at Winchester and Trinity College Cambridge. B.A. 1931. For the full details of his very varied life see his two-volume autobiography, "Life is a Four-Letter Word" which is however not entirely accurate in his assessment of his own siblings. From 1934 he worked in Journalism and Broadcasting, and wrote several novels. In 1940 he enlisted in the R.N.V.R. (Lieutenant 1940; T/A/Lt-Commander 1943) and served mostly in frigates on the East Coast and in the Atlantic. In 1943 he transferred to Naval Intelligence. After the war he joined the UK Information Office, serving at first in South Africa, then Canada. In 1951 "The Cruel Sea", one of the most outstanding of all WW2 novels, was published and became an instant bestseller; it was filmed within the year. Its success was due in part the combination of his experiences as a writer and those of an active participant in the long, bitter Battle of the Atlantic. A few years later he left the UKIO and became a full-time writer, producing a large number of very readable novels none of which quite reached the classic status of "The Cruel Sea". Two of his other works, "The Story of Esther Costello" and "The Ship that died of Shame" (a short story) were also filmed. After 1961 his life was much troubled by the aftermath to his exceptionally acrimonious second divorce. After his third marriage he settled in Malta. He died of cancer in 1979 and was buried at sea from a frigate off Portsmouth. He was married three times:

[HBBD/2] PHILIPPA CROSBY
b. 5/12/1918, one of the five daughters of John and Nora Crosby of Plettenburg Bay, South Africa. She was co-respondent to the divorce from his first wife and they were married in Johannesburg 24/12/1952. By all accounts a passionate and temperamental woman, on being introduced to her father-in-law in Claridges Hotel she declared "You're my favourite man" and fell to her knees on the carpet, which did not impress the staid and reserved Keith Monsarrat at all. Their divorce in 1961 was characterised by extreme bitterness on both sides; she extracted a promise from him that he would never mention her in any biography, and continued to pursue him for extra maintenance through the courts whenever she thought she could. She eventually pre-deceased him by about a year, in 1978.
[HBBD/3] ANN WHITELAW GRIFFITHS
Nicholas' third wife was a working journalist on the Daily Express when they married, 22/12/1961. She is the author of several books including the standard biography on Thackeray. After the marriage they settled in Gozo, where she remained after his death; she has now moved to Malta.

By 1939 he had become established within a company marketing dental surgery equipment; on the outbreak of war he enlisted in the Royal Artillery, was commissioned in Oct. 1941 and made Lieutenant in 1943. He served in North Africa where he died as a result of a transport accident, and is buried at BMC Bizerta.

He loved to show the small dramas of insect life in the garden to his grand- children. Generous and caring, he was a rock of refuge to us all in times of trouble - and enormous fun just to be with."

My mother lead an amazing life so I hope I can add worthily to her record. My father joined the FBI in 1951 and unfortunately that contributed to a stressful marriage with my parents divorcing in 1969 after 24 years together. Interestingly, my mother suffered a stroke at the close of her life and her mind thought she was still married to my dad. She spoke so lovingly and tenderly about him that it made me see "them" in a brand new way. It was one of the treasures I was afforded in an otherwise undesirable situation.
