University Of Oxford First World War Poetry Digital Archive
David Jones thanks Colin Hughes for a card from 5th January [1971] and for his ongoing 'research' / confirms Malory's Morte d'Arthur as the source for the phrase 'and on the morn Elias the captain came' [the adjutant in 15 RWF was actually called Capt Elias] / explains that in 'In Parenthesis' quotations from past literature etc. have a correspondence with actual events / discusses at length the choice of names he gave 'Mr Jenkins',...
