Klappentext

Excerpt from The Soldier-Boy

To-day, When the bugles blow and the men swing down the street, I seem to see that badge of the patron saint. Of chivalry and of England oating in light on the khaki uni forms, presaging victory, because our cause is right, and our army stands for all that St. George means. I seem to see that badge ashing from the breast of the soldier-boy, as he crouches in the trenches on this the eve of St. George's Day, England's Day, and I send a message to him from Carlyle - this: Thou art not alone if thou have faith. There is a communion of saints, unseen, yet not unreal, accompanying and, brotherlike, embracing thee, SO thou be worthy I Should not be surprised if he wears beneath his khaki jacket, hidden from view, but very near to him, that red cross on a White ground. Soldier-boy, thou art not alone! Thou art kin to St. George!

We spent a day together, the soldier-boy and I, before he went out to the front. I Shall be in the trenches on St. George's Day.
