Salonika is a stategically important Greek port on the Aegean coast of Macedonia. As there was a direct railway link between Salonika and Belgrade, this became the best route to send Allied aid to Serbia. In September 1915, Britain & France accepted the invitation from the Greek Prime Minister, Eleutherios Venizelos, to land Allied troops at Salonika.
The first Anglo-French troops arrived at Salonika on October 5th, 1915. With Bulgarian and German troops on the frontier, the French commander Maurice Sarrail and General George Milne, the leader of the British troops, turned Salonika and its surrounds into an entrenched zone. This included a trench-system similar to the one on the Western Front.

My memories:-
1962 - I remember Leslie lying in his bed at New Cavendish Street, I was 6 years old. It must have been a day or two before he died. The room was dark. That's all, apart from the heavy atmosphere.
After that my impressions were that of the flat. it was quite large, a lounge & dining room combined but slightly seperated, a bedroom, a long corridor down to the kitchen, which had a fire escape, a broomcupborde, maybe another small bedroom. My brother Peter, liked to collect all the keys up, I remember, take them home with him! Silver tea pots, glass cabinets, mirrors!
Leslie used to walk to Spring Place, everyday from Steeles Road. I like to think that he was probably very well dressed, had a cane and a lot of nerve. Apparently, it was quite a rough area around Kentish Town at that time. After Salonika though, it was nothing!


"One went up the steps to the front door. The room at the front was the living room. When we visited, we always sat in this room. At the back, right accross the house, was the drawing room. In there, they had a Grand Piano and the television. Downstairs, in the basement, was a large kitchen at the front, with a scullery beside it, also a coal cellar and other storerooms. On the ground floor again, at the back of the house, was the dining room, which had French Windows opening onto the garden.
On the first floor, Amy, Leslie and Barry had their bedrooms. Jean's bedroom was on the top floor.
When Melita came to live with Amy, she had a room on the top floor and the live-in nurse, was also up there.
During the war, beacause of the air-raids, Melita was moved downstairs and had her bedroom in the drawing room".

Leslie married Amy Melita PRESCOTT [16517], daughter of William PRESCOTT [16518] and Melita KING [16519], on 17 Jul 1919 in St Saviour's Southwark Surrey England. Amy was born on 9 Aug 1882 in 51 Penshurst Road South Hackney London England and died on 16 Dec 1972 in 69 Bush Grove Stanmore Middlesex England at age 90.

General Notes: Before marrying Leslie, Amy was a ballet teacher.

A letter exists from Sandow's Curative institute, 32a, St. James Street, London. S.W., addressed to a Mr. M. Mordkin, stating that the bearer of the letter, Miss Amy Prescott, is anxious to take some dancing lessons. (I should esteeem it a favour if you would do your very best for her as regards teaching and also in the matter of the fee as I don't think she can quite pay your usual fee)

She apparently put on an exhibition of her pupils dancing, for the Mayor of London, in the Egyptian Room, The Mansion House.

I believe that Amy spent some time in a nursing home in Stanmore, before she died. Jean was planning to take her to Hove, but Amy died before that could be accomplished.

Jean travelled all around the world in her youth, she had many friends. She devoted herself to her mother Amy, more so after Leslie had passed away. She was a good friend and secretary to John Grigg, an author who specialised in the life of Lloyd George.
