Interests:Priority for the remainder of 2013 is to try to get the 'Great War at Sea Poetry' project off the ground. So may be restricting my input into other discussions.
Current Great War interests : I am a member of the Western Front Association, Siegfried Sassoon Fellowship, Wilfred Owen Association, and the Vera Brittain Facebook group,
Also researching the lives & poetry of Isaac Rosenberg , Edward Thomas, and interested in any other poets who served.Other subjects that I am looking at include Neutrality- particularly with reference to The Netherlands, the blockade of Germany, Conscientious Objection, post Great War 'disenchantment'. Zeebrugge Raid, Broad Fourteens sinking,
I live in Hove and would particularly welcome contact with Great War devotees locally

Oops ! Just started separate thread on same programme .I thought that it was fascinating. Had often wondered how much post written by soldiers was checked, and the codes that soldiers used to pass on information to their loved ones.
