  1. It was for sale in a local shop although I did not buy it from them directly. I bought a dozen issues from 1915/16 but this issue was conspicuously missing. When I mentioned it to a friend he smiled and said it was because he had bought it. He gave it to me for Christmas which was very kind of him.

  2. You’ve got the author credit in the 29th issue ?
    His country of origin seems not to have reached this UK audience.
    First publication here appears to be PEI’s Carrie Ellen Holman’s Toronto
    1916 publication of her anthology”In the Day of Battle.”

  3. The page image from bound copy set late 1915 is posted to McCrae’s Virtual War Memorial project and the indexing
    error noted in the cutline if you open it, but not the page itself.
    While you wait to acquire that issue, will see if can make an image. Otherwise could photocopy it and put it in the mail.

    to this PEI anthologist getting it to the Toronto book market so soon.
