One cannot remember the centenary of the battle of the Somme without thinking about Rupert Brooke.
One of my most treasured possessions is a a beautiful book of his poems
‘1914 and other poems’ published in 1915 containing a beautiful picture of him laying between tissue paper. The pages are like thick card. Would save this is there was a fire! A little reminder of ‘The Soldier’
‘If, i should die, think only this of me:
That there’s some corner of a foreign field,
That is for ever England..’
Poetry at its best.
