4 October 1914

It was Sunday.  Kittie probably went to church.  She fervently believed in the power of prayer, and one can imagine what she prayed for.

After lunch, they set out for Waterloo station.  As George was coming out of 42 Well Walk, their housekeeper, Elizabeth Ellis, burst into tears.  ‘It was always a surprise and touched him to find people cared for him’, Kittie wrote later.

‘I can see that train disappearing disappearing, I can feel the chill of the subway which seemed to strike right into my heart.’
