The Great War, I was there - Part 3

Part 4 of THE GREAT WAR: I WAS THERE!On Sale Everywhere Next Thursday Leaves from the Editor’s Note-Book (Continued from page #7 o f this wrap per )photographs of themselves dating from their period of service in the army and of their several friends and acquaintances. While it will not be possible to find room in the pages of The Great War: 1 Was There !for snapshots of merely domestic or purely personal interest, I shall always be pleased to consider snapshots of scenes and happenings in France and the other theatres of the War that have not previously been published. A s 1 commented in the preceding section of this NoteBook, avery considerable and special effort has been made to obtain an entirely new set of photographs of the places and points of particular war-time interest, known to the military man who served on the Western Front. 1 he many expeditions that have been made for this purpose have shown meas clearly as anything could show, that the interest displayed in these war-time scenes on the part of those who were there is as keen, if not keener, as ever it was. Shortly, no doubt, letters will come from readers that will demonstrate fully the accuracy of this statement. Some of these letters I shall hope to find room for in this NoteBook from time to time. ?.......................................................................................SECTION IV (coned.)

Q ne of the aspects of our work which has struck me most vividly is the willingness, even the keenness, of the soldiers who have served in every capacity, from private to general, and from seaman to admiral, lo assist onus the literary side of our work. The sketch programme which we arranged to give with our first Part represented nearly two hundred extracts and articles by men who most certainly were 'there ’and, with avery few exceptions indeed, they expressed the keenest interest in our work and their hope that they would be able to assist us even further in the presentation of the human story of the Great War. This is a most en­couraging fact, and it emboldens tome suggest that those of my readers who have well documented accounts of their experi­ences in some capacity as fighting members of the Services, should communicate with me, sending particulars of any personal story that might fill a page or two of our work. Obviously, as our chapters are generally arranged in order of time it will not be possible to augment our earlier sections with such contributions, unless they proved to be of so great an importance and appeal as to be worthy of supplementary publication.
