His childhood was overshadowed by tension in his parents marriage.

William Gore, a widower, had married a woman twenty years his junior. When they lost their first child, Constance became over-protective of her surviving son Geoffrey and made him her partner in lifelong conflict with her husband. Both parents possessed considerable strength of character. William, born in 1853, remained very much a man of the nineteenth century. Constance was already married when Queen Victoria died, but she was entirely at home in the twentieth.

Her experiences as a Red Cross VAD nurse during the First World War set the seal on her emancipation.The first forty of Geoffrey Gores eighty years ended with his service in the Second World War. When he came to write this memoir for his descendants, he chose to close it at that point.
