Stock Photo - Lady Idina Hay (nee Sackville), pictured in a sarong or kanga with two friends in Kenya during the 1920s, while she was married to Josslyn Hay, Earl of Erroll. On the left is the Countess N. de Graevenitz and on the right, Mrs. M. Roberts, both similarly attired. 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.
