Some were submitted by literary-minded readers others have been taken from volumes not yet represented in our pages— in at least one case for the very good reason that the work had not at that time been published. f&T all events, 1 ihink my readers will come to agree that all the matter, both textual and pictorial, contained in the Supplement is well worthy of the standard inset the publica­tion as a whole. In the final Part of the present I Was THERE series (Part 51) there will be, in addition to the promise:! appendix of Divisions that fought on the Western Front, avery full Index (with Pronunciation Guide), covering every fact and illustration in our 2,000 odd pages. I MENTIONED in Part 43 that I was considering a con­tinuation of I Was Therein a modified form after the conclusion of the three volumes of the present series. The scheme is based not only upon the immense amount of really first-class material which has inevitably been excluded from our three volumes, but even more definitely upon the pleas of avery large body of readers for such a continuation. I am glad to announce that in response to this demand 1 have now planned aNew Series of 1 Was Thereto appear fortnightly from September 26 next. Published at ninepence, the fortnightly Parts will be exactly the same in character and contents as the weekly Parts, although the weekly cost will be halved. Fuller details will appear later. I AST week's Old Comrades’ Corner included an entry de­voted to Mr. W.M. Linder, settled in New Zealand and anxious to find anyone who knew his brother. The latter was killed inaction at Hohenzollcrn Redoubt in March 1916. As a boy of 14 my correspondent was on night duty as a coast-watching scout at Brightlingsea, Essex, on Whitsunday, 1918, during the last air raid of the War. He notes that Brightlingsea was concerned in two other interesting episodes —for it was from here that the blockships of Zeebrugge were loaded, and also that the! hames boom defence was maintained. “J*WO personalities interesting to the student of the Great War died recently on the same day.
