Which brings me back to those amazing women - many of whom went to help out on the Western Front and in other theatres of War during 1914 - 1918. Without Jumbo Jets and luxury cruise liners, without mobile phones and those little plastic containers for beauty products, etc., wearing long skirts and high button boots in the most atrocious of conditions and with very, very little water - how did they do what they did? I salute them all.
I am working on a further revised list which will be available shortly.
I would like to thank everyone who has been in touch with me - I feel very lucky indeed to have so much support.
In particular I am very grateful to the following people who contacted me:
Seona Ford, Chair of the Dorothy L. Sayers Society - Seona had a letter printed in "The Times" on Monday, 31st March 2013 on the subject of women poets of the First World War. The link to the Dorothy L. Sayers website is www.sayers.org.uk - definitely a 'must see'. Seona tells me the Society has around 500 members world wide.
