online resource
posted on 2024-05-02, 18:52 authored by First World War Poetry Digital Archive Project Team

Typescript on pink paper corrected in ink on two pages. First page contains title, lines 1-19, four unused lines, 20-25, one unused line, 26-38. Possible word mistakes may be the result of dictation to a typist; Isaac Rosenberg has corrected these in ink. He was transferred to the 40th Division Works Battalion in January 1917, meaning that part of his responsibility was taking wire up to the line at night. |
