I think that 'ANZAC' would be more accurate than Suvla Bay

I am a James Elroy Flecker collector and have the other biographies of him; also a couple of editions of his letters. Next time I'm at home I'll check through them for any mention of Cheesman. The Heather Walker biography is quite new to me.

Others should be aware that despite the date of his death (1915) Flecker was not a Great War casualty...
Michael, it looks as if Heather Walker's biography is a small-press publication: are you still in touch with her? That may be the easiest way for me to get a copy...

Mariecourt and Michael (also Moriaty earlier),
Thanks for that information re: GLC! Having been fascinated by and having made great use of his book since the 1980's, I have always wanted to know more about him. The really weird thing, in a sense, is that althoughI live in Turkey, I have never yet managed a trip to the Cannakale battlefields, but was planning to do so sometime this year. I am now so glad that I have left it so late as now I can go there with a specific search in mind, the area where GLC was involved in.
Michael, surprising news that you have not had much luck searching for reports of GLC's death and/or obituaries. IIRC, the introduction of my (republished) edition of his book has an obituary I'll check and scan if you would like this.

... I would welcome an obituary...
