In Memoriam by Ewart Alan Mackintosh

LibriVox logoBritish Legion PoppyLibriVox volunteers bring you 18 recordings of In Memoriam by Ewart Alan Mackintosh (1893-1917). This was the Weekly Poetry project for November 7th – November 14th, 2010.

This week’s poem has been chosen for this time of remembrance. Lieutenant Ewart Alan Mackintosh M.C. was a war poet and an officer in the Seaforth Highlanders. His best poetry has been said to be comparable in quality to that of Rupert Brooke. In 1916 he led a raid in which several of his men were killed, one of whom inspired this poem. Mackintosh was himself killed on 21 November 1917.
