July 26th 1919

The Times of yesterday brought the news of another bereavement in the Poulton family.

Janet (Mrs CP Symonds), the youngest daughter of Professor and Mrs Poulton was killed in a fall from a bicycle in Redhill on July 23rd.

This is the third tragedy the family has suffered in recent years. The eldest daughter, Emily, died in August 1917, and Ronald Poulton was killed on the Western Front in 1915.

The Professor is working on a book in commemoration of Ronnie’s life, which we hope to see later in the year.
