General Montgomery's marriage to the widow, Elizabeth 'Betty'; Carver was a success. It provided him with two ready made stepsons and one natural son, David. Betty (who was the sister of Percy Hobart and the widow of Olympic rower medalist, Osward Carver who had been killed in the Great War) was an accompished artist and her friends were Augustus John, A. P. Herbert, Jack Squire and other talented creative people. Monty with his quick intelligence enjoyed their company enormously although, it has been speculated, this may have made him more aware of the dullness and stupidity of many of his Army peers.

He protected Betty from domestic chores and was known to have been fantastically bossy, even to the extent of personally engaging servants, but this was exactly what Betty wanted because it left her free to paint. Their married years in India, England and Egypt were happy, and her love made him more friendly and pleasant.

Betty's early death, in Bernard's arms, in October, 1937 was a tragedy which undoubtedly accentuated the unfortunate traits for which he has received much post-war criticism
