The Prince of Wales National Relief Fund was wound up in the early 1920’s (see HansardHL Deb 18 April 1923 vol 53 cc714-24). As such Abela Publishing, the republishers of this little book, have selected THE BRITISH LEGION as the recipient of any funds raised through its sale. The British Legion have been providing assistance to returned servicemen since 1921.
Give gladly, you rich—'tis no more than you owe—For the weal of your Country, your wealth's overflow!Even I that am poor am performing my part;I am giving my brain, I am giving my heart.
This collection of War Poems, the net profits from which will be given to the Prince of Wales's Fund, represents the free offering of English poets to the cause of National Relief.
Most of the poems have appeared recently in the Press. Mr. Robert Bridges' opening contribution, Mr. Henry Newbolt's, Mr. Maurice Hewlett's, Mr. R. E. Vernède's, Mr. Binyon's, were all printed in the Times during the few days immediately following the declaration of war, as also was the sonnet by Mr. William Watson. Sir Owen Seaman's poem came out originally in Punch, "The Hour" in the Daily Telegraph, "The United Front" in the Daily Mail. "We Willed it Not" is reprinted from the Sphere, "Duty" and "Commandeered" from the Westminster Gazette, and the poems by Mr. Gilbert and Mr. Cecil Chesterton from the New Witness. The New Weekly published the verses by Mr. John Freeman, and the Daily Chronicle those by Mr. Harold Begbie. The two hymns which close the collection are reprinted, by special permission of their authors, from volumes previously published.
The publishers desire also to record their thanks to Mr. William Nicholson for the design which appears on the cover.
