Evidence

"The ... grandiloquent ""education programme"" we were able to satisfy sufficiently. A number of the ""boys"" were barely literate and Miss Nettleton could deal with the three R"s. Some of them were not at all too old to sit around her on the floor like children while she read them <i>Treasure Island</i> or <i>The Wind in the Willows</i>: this could be counted as an hour of ""English""."

Notes
Baron describes Miss Nettleton as an ""elderly maiden lady,"" and Michael Snape identifies her from YMCA records as coming from Battersea. The 1911 census records an Irene Nettleton, 36, born in Clapham, living in Wandsworth, which suggests that Nettleton was only in her early 40s when Baron knew her.
