Education - British Pestalozzi Children's Village - Sedlescombe, Sussex
Just recently these Tibetan children, who are taking a ride on a farm cart at the British Pestalozzi Children's Village at Sedlescombe, near Battle, Sussex, were enduring life in a refugee camp near Delhi. All the youngsters, who are aged between five and 13, were nominated by the Dalai Lama to come to Britain in the hope they may go back to their own country as doctors, nurses, teachers and administrators.

Josslyn and Idina Hay at Slains, their farm in Kenya
The Hon. Josslyn and Lady Idina Hay pictured at Slains, their 2000 acre farm in Gilgil, Kenya. Pictured from left are: The Hon. Josslyn Hay, Major Roberts, Major J. Grant, Lady Idina Hay, Mrs C. Birkbeck, the Princess Philippe de Bourbon, and the Hon. Mrs Grant. The farmhouse can be seen in the background. Five-times married Idina would gain notoriety as part of the Happy Valley Set when she moved to Kenya in 1924 with her third husband, Josslyn Hay, Earl of Errol. With her serial marriages and reputation for debauched decadence, she inspired the character of 'The Bolter' in Nancy Mitford's novels, The Pursuit of Love and Love in a Cold Climate, Evelyn Waugh's Vile Bodies and the character Iris Storm in The Green Hat by Michael Arlen. Date: 1926
