I admired Lady Baden-Powell greatly. The earliest impression was of seeing Her and her husband at the Hare & Hounds Hotel at Westonbirt, when their daughter Betty and I were at school there together; then again in 1937 Lady B-P came to Bath. I was a very young Guide captain and took our Kingweston Guides there, and clearly remember her animation and warmth. The children were murmuring "Coo, isn't she lovely?" Lady Hobhouse chaired the rally, and I think the B-P's Silver Wedding was mentioned.
