Lionel Dunsterville Diary (5127 words)
Leo and Agnes arrived after a very smooth passage - it is nice to have the eldest son home again, and he looks very well.
Leo has been most helpful to us in the maids' absence, it is lucky they were away or we should never have found out what a good worker he is - everything done to the best of his ability and without grousing - and there is lots to do.
Leo left for Cambridge - a milestone in his life, may it lead him to success and happiness.
The Maxse Letter (4406 words)
The catalogue claims that the Maxse letter sheds new light on the charge: ‘The papers do not appear to have been consulted by scholars, including Cecil Woodham-Smith and Saul David, Cardigan’s latest biographer.’ That may be so, but others, including Pemberton and Harris 3 did consult them, without coming to dramatic conclusions.
Maxse was on his sickbed, nursing a damaged foot, and even before he was wounded had been subject to recurrent bouts of fever.
Adkin believes that Cardigan could not have seen the guns on the right, and was applying hindsight in his account, 14 but Maxse’s letter supports Cardigan, and Adkin elsewhere 15 quotes the recollections of Private Albert Mitchell of the 13th Light Dragoons, who mentions guns on both sides.
