Here is chapter 12 of "At Ypres with Best Dunkley” not too sure if it should be "Off to The Front”?

Duration 23:36

Summary

At Ypres with Best-Dunkley is the collection of extracts from the author's private diary and letters home during the days spent in the Salient and its vicinity, between the Battle of Messines and the Third Battle of Ypres.


Having spent some 25 years in the British Army the acronyms used are entirely familiar to me, however other listeners may find themselves wondering what SAA,MO,NCO etc stand for. The following website gives a very comprehensive list.

There is a very short poem by Siegfried Sassoon called “The General” has this been done previously,?If not I would like to do it in memory of my grandfather Jack Nessling.

Thank you Peter. I'll get this added to the MW as soon as I get back to a computer with a regular mouse.

As to the poem, this is intended as a prose collection. May I suggest the monthly poetry collection for the poem?

Peter,
Back to a normal computer. Gutenberg has this listed as:
Quote:
Title: At Ypres with Best-Dunkley

Author: Thomas Hope Floyd

I picked up that, plus the title for chapter 12. Would be interested to learn why you are thinking to call it "Off to the front".

Apologies I was going to do Chapter 1 'Off to the Front' got confused in my dotage!

I was thinking of doing the last chapter 'The Battle of Ypres' it's quite long, but after soloing 'Bleak House' .........

The time frame for completion I believe is 6 months and I have only three chapters left to finish my latest solo.

Any thoughts :hmm:

Regards

Peter

Peter,

Ah I see! Timing is all very flexible. I'll put that chapter in the MW and if you haven't submitted it by the time I'm ready to catalog, I'll PM you and check on status.

Chapter 12 of "At Ypres with Best Dunkley” has been withdrawn as it is not PD for the reader. :(

I would like to read Chapter 9 of “Celebrated Spies and Famous Mysteries of the Great War by George Barton. The chapter is entitled “The Romantic Life of the Dutch-Javanese Dancer Who was Shot as a Spy.”
