When looking back on Rupert's life one should remember
his insecure childhood. With his two sisters Daisy and Gracie dying when
he was three (which must have been a terrible family upset) his sister
Alice when he was four, and his mother Emily when he was six. If this
wasn't bad enough both his father George and eldest brother George junior
died when he was eight, and his closest brother Albert Roy died when
he was twelve. His only surviving brother Herbert had joined the navy
when Rupert was seven. In Rupert's short life he had lost seven close
family members including both parents. Rupert was then to be brought
up by his three sisters Emily, Lilly and Adelaide.
