Belgian Forgotten Poets of WW1

How fitting as today is the anniversary of Wilfred Owen's birth that Yvon Davis has sent me a wonderful gift - details of a Belgian forgotten poet of WW1.   Many thanks indeed Yvon.   Find out more here https://heatherwilliamshmw.wordpress.com/

And here is a link to a very interesting article written by Michael Morpurgo (author of the book "War Horse") about his Grandfather, Belgian poet Emile Cammaerts - http://www.theguardian.com/world/2014/jan/01/first-world-war-centenary-michael-morpurgo


Cammaerts wrote a preface to the poetry anthology edited by R.M. Ingersley (Russell Markand) under the title "The Glory of Belgium: A Tribute and a Chronicle", published in 1915 by Erskine Macdonald and sold in aid of the Belgian Repatriation Fund.
