Event Description

Robert Wainwright's latest book, Sheila is about an extraordinary woman unknown to most Australians. Vivacious, confident and striking, Sheila Chisholm met her first husband, Francis Edward Scudamore St Clair-Erskine, a first lieutenant and son of the 5th Earl of Rosslyn, when she went to Egypt during the Great War to nurse her brother. Arriving in London as a young married woman, the world was at her feet, and she enjoyed it immensely. Edward, Prince of Wales, called her 'a divine woman' and his brother, Bertie, the future George VI of England was especially close to her. She subsequently became Lady Milbanke and ended her days as Princess Dimitri of Russia.
