I looked after Andrew and met his wife Roseen when I was a young doctor at Westminster Hospital London. He had a portrait of Robert Graves which he called the "Irishman" in reference to how he understood Robert thought of himself at school being embarassed to be a Von Ranke at the beginning of the First WW. Andrew's wife's mother Mary Molly Graves was a favorite step sister of Robert Graves.
