      Jack was 17 years older than she was.
      Allee, according to Heather Smythson, spent most winters toing and froing on Banana Boats, I suppose to the W Indies. If you are living in rented accom, why not. You get kept and lots of bridge. There must have been several cabins for such people. Jack was in the RN so away a lot.
      1912 she was informant for death of her step father Alfred Smythson. She was living 12 Bessborough Gardens, Westminster.
