    • Whilst husband James was at war, Minnie became a barmaid. She drank too much, was unfaithful and seriously neglected the children. They lived in filth. This information was reported to James by his brother Willy, neighbours of the children and a private detective. Upon his return to Bristol after the war, James took the children and put them into a private school in London.
