"The Glory that was Belgium: A Tribute and a Chronicle" - poetry anthology compiled by Russell Markland

A huge thank you to Dave Coleman for bringing to my attention a wonderful anthology of war poetry compiled by his Father-in-law the late Russell Markland.

"The Glory of Belgium" a book of poetry was compiled by Russell Markland and sold in aid of the Belgian Repatriation fund set up in April 1915 by Mrs Vandervelde, wife of the then Belgian Secretary of State.

The book is available as a free download here:

and is well worth a read as it is full of beautiful poetry.
