From Mud to Mufti:With Old Bill on all Fronts by Bruce Bairnsfather (1887 - 1959).


All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/from-mud-to-muftiwith-old-bill-on-all-fronts-by-bruce-bairnsfather/

This second volume of memories from the Great War (WWI) by the celebrated war cartoonist and social observer, begins with Bairnsfather's recuperation from injuries suffered in the Second Battle of Ypres and ends with the Armistice.

In this phase of his war activity, Bairnsfather is repeatedly hampered by his inability to fully recovery from his war wounds, and is eventually removed from combat service. This perceived disaster for his war career actually was a lucky break, because he was then attached to British Intelligence as an authorized war cartoonist--perhaps the only one of the war. In this capacity, he was ordered to visit the various allied fronts, observing and drawing the aspects of the war in those locations that impressed themselves upon his mind and memory.

His perspective, visiting and witnessing first hand the interactions between the various allied armies, remains unique, and his initimitable style provide a valuable as well as entertaining glimpse of allied operations in the final stages of the war. ( DrPGould)

    IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the amount of languishing projects (and hence the amount of files on our hard-pressed server), we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't managed to record anything. If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).
    Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

Dave:

This link is here just in the event there is a question (and there should not be) about this works copyright status. This confirms two copyright dates of Nov. 21 and Nov. 28, 1919 for this edition of M2M. (The European edition of the work was copyrighted in the US in Oct 1919.) There is no copyright info in the work, merely a date of publication, so I had to go and dig this out.

https://docs.google.com/document/d/1v-pucZNd-X_M5xo0nPpjIk89g7ETslMnsXQO-ESXi00/edit?usp=sharing

Looking forward to another great read. Image

Note: Dave--I probably won't post anything here prior to Nov 20. I plan to go through this at about the usual plodding pace, but we both have holidays and such coming up. There may be points at which the sections will stack up and others when I may go a few extra days between sections...just don't know about scheduling yet...I don't plan to obsess either way and I'm sure you won't either.

Thanks for the copyright information. It seems pretty straight forward. I am swamped with LV work (and am traveling) right now so it may be a few days before I setup the MW. Long, long before the 20th!

No rush--no problem. (I used to do a very small amount of copyright law in my practice. However, I no longer give legal opinions nor do I practice law--haven't for 20 years--my choice--but I do remember where to look for a few things). I wanted to put it here, because when I was checking it out there are a plethora of individuals out there who are saying all kinds of things about which works are/are not in copyright--and they all show up on Google. This, however is from the Copyright Office itself--pretty hard to dispute.

Travel safely. Take your time with the MW. (It'll give me a chance to finish marking up the text.)

Many thanks for working with me.

Let me know if there are any changes needed. In a few days I'll move this to the Going Solo forum to keep this forum tidy.

Hello, Dave.

I decided to start this a little early because I didn't realize that next week was Thanksgiving nor did I know at the time that Librivox was updating on the Wednesday prior to it.

I only play to do through Section 2 before the Holiday (reasonably short readings) and will resume posting the Monday following Thanksgiving.

We're launched!

0 PL OK.

I'll be traveling until the Tuesday after turkey day so that works very well for me. Feel free though to post files as in the evenings I sometimes have free time.
