New WW1 Anthology "Great Ward Poetry"

The British actress Prunella Scales has helped to launch a book that gives a fresh look at the First World War through the poetry of the men and women of one of London's WW1 hospitals - the Royal Victoria Patriotic Building in Wandsworth, known as No. 3 Hospital.

"Great Ward Poetry" tells the story of the men and women who worked or were treated at the Hospital/.

For every books sold, a contribution will be made to SSAFA - the charity that looks after the families of serving forces personnel.

With grateful thanks to Stanley Kaye of the Facebook Group "Remembering World War One in 2014 One Hundred Years".  Stanley's idea is to fill the world with poppies in remembrance.
