8 February 1886. Henry's departure from London, England on SS. Quetta.

" About nine o'clock, the goodbye to my parents, the last. I can almost
see the look on dad's face now - he felt it my dad. Mum I think was too
muddled, she would blame dad for it all." ( Extract from Henry Strutt's
diary ).

not going away ".
