At Senlis Once

University Of Oxford First World War Poetry Digital Archive
Page 276 from a first edition of 'Undertones of War' (1928) showing the poem 'At Senlis Once'. The prose section of the volume was written, apart from the help of a few maps, entirely from memory while Blunden was teaching in Tokyo between 1924 and 1927. Annotations in Blunden's hand added later at an unknown date. He has written 'irony' at the end of the poem.
