[NI0398] Immediately after taking her Matriculation at the start of the summer holidays of 1925, when she had just turned 17, Muriel caught Typhoid. It was an isolated case and the source was never traced but it was assumed to be from swimming in the sea at Southwold shortly before the end of term. Muriel was very ill, spent several weeks in hospital and missed the entire Christmas term. When she returned in the January she had slipped so far behind she found it impossible to catch up and, as a result, abandoned the languages course she was following and left school at Easter 1926.

In 1934? she went on a 16 day Mediterranean cruise with her Mother leaving from Southampton and visiting Nice, Morocco and the Spanish coastline of Barcelona from where they could hear the gunfire of the Spanish Civil War. In Nice they visited the Casino.

These notes were made following a conversation with Muller on a visit to New Trees on 9th April 1997
