  • Notes 
    • Gladys was the daughter of a successful lawyer and a half Italian mother, both Londoners. She and her elder brother would have had a comfortable upbringing since both her parents were well-off.
      At some point she met her husband George, who was 10 years her senior, and married him in 1909 when she was 23. He was by this time a decorated soldier in India.
      She then would have followed him out to India where he served until at least 1917.
