  • Under Five Flags- Roslyn D'Onston 1887

    Hopefully complimenting the terrific find made by Debra Arif in the link below:

    http://www.jtrforums.com/showthread....634#post169634

    .... without that find, we may never have been able to locate this following article. That's how things work when you're a team.

      Nemo found this article (Under Five Flags) in a New Zealand paper published in March of 1887.
      That may be found on this thread :

        That is one hell of a 'tache

        Both he and other characters mentioned by RDS appear to have widespread fame which he could have read about

          I'm not sure if that is all articles combined Howard, but RDS mentions having 3 articles published between 1884 and 1888 about his service under five flags

              Regarding the other two articles allegedly written and published....its been difficult locating them. Perhaps future digitization will reveal the two.

                D'Onston mentions the Countess De La Torre in the Under Five Flags article...apparently she had seen better days....or more likely, D'Onston didn't know her at all.

                          This occurred during the first weekend D'Onston was in the London Hospital ( for 19 weeks...)...D'Onston having registered in late June of '88.

                              Her house in Pembroke Square was eventually closed....the ninety animals had to be taken away.

                              Prior to all this, she had lived in Dover.
