Tubby Clayton (Talbot House) : "In the early summer of 1916, boastful of the beauty of the garden, we put up a notice saying : 'Come into the garden and forget about the war', and almost the first acceptance of the invitation was intimated by arrival of a 5.9 wich blaw sideways into the House, mortally wounding a Canadian who had come in with his brother to write a joint letter home."
