Beryl, whose spirited, if careless,
Festival of Light Tableaux
resulted in the fire that gutted the West Wing
(and also precipitated her somewhat overdue demise)
In Memory of Dear Beryl whose Aim was
to Lighten our Lives.
This photograph was taken in Happier Days when she first became obsessed with being the Festival of Light Fairy
A CAUTIONARY NOTE TO INMATES:
In the event of a fire, it is important to follow the rules as laid down in the Book of Rules regarding Fire Drill. There is a sand bucket and pail of water on each floor. Running around crying and waving one’s arms in the air, rather than dowsing Dear Beryl with water may have prevented the complete West Wing and the Queen Alexandra annexe from being demolished in the ensuing fire.
Beryl’s room in the Princess May of Teck wing, with lovely views of the Kitchen Garden will be available after decoration is complete.
