Josslyn and Idina Hay at Slains, their farm in Kenya

The Hon. Josslyn and Lady Idina Hay pictured at Slains, their 2000 acre farm in Gilgil, Kenya. Pictured from left are: The Hon. Josslyn Hay, Major Roberts, Major J. Grant, Lady Idina Hay, Mrs C. Birkbeck, the Princess Philippe de Bourbon, and the Hon. Mrs Grant. The farmhouse can be seen in the background. Five-times married Idina would gain notoriety as part of the Happy Valley Set when she moved to Kenya in 1924 with her third husband, Josslyn Hay, Earl of Errol. With her serial marriages and reputation for debauched decadence, she inspired the character of 'The Bolter' in Nancy Mitford's novels, The Pursuit of Love and Love in a Cold Climate, Evelyn Waugh's Vile Bodies and the character Iris Storm in The Green Hat by Michael Arlen. Date: 1926
