"We also served The Forgotten Women of the First World War" by Vivien Newman

Vivien Newman suggested that I might find some women poets in her book "We also served The Forgotten Women of the First World War" and she was right.

Mentioned in the book are three women poets - Mary Elizabeth Boyle, Phyllis Iliff and Alexandra Ethelreda Graham who wrote under the pen-name A.E.G.    Two of them are featured in Catherine W. Reilly's wonderful Bibliography of English Poetry of the First World War but Phyllis Iliff is not.

With many thanks to Vivien for a wonderful book and for finding another forgotten female poet of the First World War.

"We also served The Forgotten Women of the First World War" by Vivien Newman was published by Pen and Sword History, Barnsley in 2014.
