Easter 1915

Today, 4 April 1915, was Easter Day. Kittie Calderon went to church, but we do not know if George did. At Steep, Hampshire, Edward Thomas wrote his poem ‘In Memoriam’:

     The flowers left thick at nightfall in the wood
     This Eastertide call into mind the men,
     Now far from home, who, with their sweethearts, should
     Have gathered them and will do never again.
