author of text

Ernest Farrar (1885-1918) studied at the Royal College of Music. An accomplished organist he held several posts including one in Dresden. He enlisted in the Grenadier Guards in 1915, and was commissioned as 2nd Lieutenant, 3rd Battalion Devonshire Regiment in February 1918. On his second day at the Western Front, Farrar was killed at the Battle of Epehy. The war ended only a few weeks later.

Edward Verrall Lucas (1868-1938) was a poet, humourist, and novelist. His whole working life was in literature. He was an apprentice bookseller, a journalist, and a biographer before joining Punch magazine in 1904.
