Mrs A. E. Grant (Bettine Stuart-Wortley) as a nurse, WW1 Featured Highclere Castle Print

Mrs A. E. Grant (Bettine Stuart-Wortley) as a nurse, WW1

Mrs A. E. Grant, the former Bettine Stuart-Wortley, pictured around the time of her marriage in nursing uniform as she was doing war work at a hospital in Cavendish Square, London. She was the elder daughter of Major-General the Hon. Edward Stuart-Wortley, C.S.O., of Highclere Castle, Christchurch. The Tatler comments that it is interesting to note that the Kaiser once rented Highclere and was a great admirer of the house. He said that no such turf or trees existed in Germany, and that such a place was only possible in a country unravaged by warfare, as has been the continent. It is still likely to remain unravaged, despite the Kaiser. Elizabeth Valetta (Bettine) Stuart-Wortley (1896-1978) married Captain Allister Edward Grant, 9th Lancers at St. Margaret's, Westminster on 14 August 1917. The couple divorced in 1922, and Bettine then married Montagu Towneley-Bertie, 8th Earl of Abingdon in 1928 and was styled Countess of Abingdon. Date: 1917

Locomotive 4096, Highclere Castle with its wartime black out screen, c.1940

A train speeding through the countryside at night was a prime target for the German Luftwaffe. The glow from the locomotive firebox and light from the carriages made a train all too visible to the enemy. One of the blackout measures introduced by the GWR was the anti-glare screen. This image of Castle Class locomotive, Highclere Castle, shows an anti-glare screen attached to the cab roof and tender. During daylight the screen could be rolled back and, should an air raid be called, it could be quickly pulled back over the cab. This screen only covered the roof of the cab, but some screens covered the sides too
