From the Times, June 29, 1927

A marriage has been arranged and will take place shortly (very quietly
owing to illness) between Vice-Admiral (Retd.) the Hon. H.E. Holmes ą
Court and Lydia Gertrude, second surviving daughter of the late Mr.
William Manning, of Wing, Bucks, and of Mrs. Manning, of Linslade,
Bucks, and widow of the Hon. Charles Holmes ą Court.

From the Times, October 27, 1934
May an old friend and shipmate of the late Admiral Herbert Holmes ą
Court pay a tribute to his memory? He was so unassuming and modest
that many may have missed the absolute goodness and unselfishness of
his character. I knew him from early days in the Britannia and have
been shipmates with him for several years. In all that time I never
knew him to harbour an unkind thought of others or to think of
himself. He had great ability as an officer and seaman, and many a
man will remember him for acts of kindness and help. It may not have
been his fortune to take a prominent part in the late War, but where
many others may have gained distinction he retained to the end the
fair name of a great gentleman and a true friend.

Admiral Sir Reginal Hall.
