Sir Vandeleur was born on July 28, 1881.

I've written about his experience during the early stages of the Japanese occupation here:

The later occupation here:

His death here:

And this post gives a brief sketch of his pre-war career, although most of it is about the two writers Auden and Isherwood, who interviewed Grayburn in 1938:

Thanks Brian, I've updated his details. Reading your notes about him, he comes across as a brave and decent man.

Coincidentally Chester Bennet's name came up in a conversation this week, so I sent them straight along to your site to learn more!
