Native events in the 1920s[edit | edit source]
- 1920: Racundra's First Cruise and The Soldier and Death published.

- 1928: Altounyan family purchases two sailing dinghies, named Swallow and Mavis(CFT2).
- 1929: A severe winter, with Windermere freezing over for several weeks. Similar to the "Great Frost" of February 1895, which was the inspiration for Winter Holiday In the Great Frost the whole of Windermere was frozen, and the headmaster of Arthur's school at Windermere let them make the most of it. Those weeks of clear ice with that background of snow-covered, sunlit, blue-shadowed hills were, forty years after, to give me a book called Winter Holiday for which I have a sort of tenderness Autobiography page 19 and Life pages 46-47.
