Works in the Herald 1935

"Unemployed members are requested to get in touch with the secretary, Captain ___, of ___, who will make arrangements for them to be present. The matter will be treated as confidential." - From the broadcast announcement of a soldiers' reunion.

But when the war-worn, knowing all
   Of glory, horror and hate,
Abandons all for the heart's sure call
   And the need of a stricken mate.

Better than all the man-made creeds
   Begotten in hate's foul fog,
Furthered by dark and bloody deeds
   In the name of the under-dog;
Better than "rights" conceived in rage,
   With policy, plot and plan,
Earth's rich, rejected heritage,
   The love of man for man.

Herald, 23 September 1935, p8
