Extracts from the Diary of the Hon, Josslyn F. Pennington – Part 6

This diary extract is regarding a Sunday afternoon:-

“Went down to Kingstown, full of Sunday people swelling about in their best raiment.  Insulted Wolesley grievously by passing him by without speaking … … Saw Persse and Wolesley bathe in the sea; what a great bullet hole in him, got in Burmah.  A lion to fight he is!  I shall fight shy of insulting him in future!”
