More new - to me - women poets of WW1

With grateful thanks - again - to Dave Coleman who this morning told me about a soldier poet I had not heard of - see Fascinating Facts - sent me the following this afternoon:

"I'm now listing some female WW1 poets of whom you may not have been aware, lifted from my father in law's anthology "The Glory of Belgium":-

Violet Gillespie, A.Mary F. Robinson (Aagnes Mary Frances Duclaux), Phyllis Marks,  Marion Couthouy Smith, Jeanie Donnan, Bertha Baily, Florence Clee"

It is always a delight to find unknown poets and I shall have a look for "The Glory of Belgium" an Anthology of Poetry edited by Russell Markland (1892 - 1973), as well as trying to find out more about those poets.

Thank you so much Dave.
