Scope and content

Annotated "From Carl Dons 12/88". Included for sale is a copy of "Background" by Franklin Lushington, inscribed to Helen Thomas in 1931. Lushington commanded the battery in which Edward Thomas was serving at the time of his death in April 1917. It was Lushington who provided the poet's widow with an account of her husband's burial: "As we stood by his grave the sun came and the guns round seemed to stop firing for a short time. This typified to me what stood out most in your husband's character - the spirit of quiet, sunny, unassuming cheerfulness"
