War Memorial

placeholder gifGreenway House

Later in the war, the Mallowans had to move out of Greenway which was requistioned to accommodate American naval officers. One of them painted a mural on the wall of the library which included portraits of American President, Franklin D. Roosevelt and British Prime Minister Winston Churchill. When Agatha returned to the house she decided to keep the painting as a permanent 'war memorial'.
