Sir Francis Osbert Sacheverell Sitwell, 5th Baronet,1892 - 1969. His elder sister was Dame Edith Louisa Sitwell and his younger brother Sir Sacheverell Sitwell. They devoted their lives to the arts and literature. Facinating family - I use to read Sir Osbert Sitwells - Left Hand Right Hand, Great Morning, Tales my father taught me, and Noble Essences etc. Dame Edith wrote an excellent piece on English Eccentrics - these books are still part of my travel literature around the globe.
