Source Notes

Sy Scholfield quotes from Rex Harrison: A Biography by Nicholas Wapshott (Chatto & Windus, 1991), page 82: "It was during an air raid in London on 19 February 1944 that Lilli was rushed to the London Clinic. It was snowing and the ambulance skidded along the road, with Rex sliding behind in his car. Lilli gave birth that night."

His birth announcement in The Times reports no time of birth (22 February 1944, page 1). A birth time of 9 PM is speculative.
