From The Times, 1908:

Lieutenant Clifton Wyndham Hilary Skinner, who died of enteric fever on February 17 at Newport, Monmouthshire, entered the Army from the Militia, and was promoted a Lieutenant in the Royal Field Artillery in 1903. By his death, an officer of great promise is lost to the Royal Regiment, as Lieutenant Skinner, before entering a military career, was scholar and head of Winchester College in 1898, and a scholar of New College, Oxford. He was also an interpreter for the Russian and German languages.

From Tessa Kennedy, granddaughter of Allan Bickford-Smith, by email April 2006:

"Dear Alan
Thanks for your e-mail. I live in Hampshire and go to London two or three times a year. We grew up in Bexleyheath and friends of ours went to Merton Court School. I'm afraid I don't know anything about Yardley Court. I don't think Hilary Francis Skinner or Clifton Wyndham S had any children. Clifton Wyndham S had the family talent for modern languages and worked in Russia - perhaps he died there."
