University Of Oxford First World War Poetry Digital Archive
Walkers back-loop pocket book, bound in pig skin and priced at 2 shillings. The cover pages are creases, suggesting that he was carrying the pocket book either when he was knocked over by a shell blast from a 5.9 shell on the 8th of April, or when he was killed at an oservation post while directing the fire of 244 Battery during the opening barrage of the Battle of Arras.
