Today's Daily Mail reports on Richard Kay's gossip page that Joan Hunter Dunn, the sporty, strapping, tennis-playing heroine of Sir John Betjeman's famous poem, A Subaltern's Love Song, has just died at the age of 92.One of Middle England's iconic poems.
"Miss J Hunter Dunn, Miss J Hunter Dunn,
Furnish'd and burnish'd by Aldershot sun,"
I always had my suspicions about Sir John's yearnings after her.
You mention Hartley Witney where there are a couple of C17th Sellon graves.
