Marietta Crichton Stuart, who is giving this talk, was brought up in Scotland and, after gaining a degree in Medieval History, had a career in the newspaper industry. Sometimes referred to as the family archivist, she now works as a freelance researcher and historian, and as a ‘London Blitz’ walk guide. Her current work includes research for a biography of her grandfather, an MP, killed in the Great War. Her interest in the ‘Alice’ story arose following a visit to the Western Front cemetery, then she subsequently discovered various family, Christ Church and Scottish connections.
Further details will be given nearer the time.
