Thank you seaJane for this post which I found very interesting.

I have to admit that I only saw Disney's take on 'Pooh', but now I have a small grandson who, I hope, will allow me to read the works of this man to him some evenings.

Thanks again

Really interesting and thanks for posting.  I knew he served but the description of laying signal line under fire was very interesting.

Excellent stuff! The books are wonderful for reading aloud, especially if you feel up to doing the voices. It wasn't until I heard Alan Bennett reading them that it struck me that Roo and Kanga would have Australian accents :P.

Glad you enjoyed it. I discovered this a few years ago and really like it: https://net.lib.byu.edu/english/wwi/over/heart.html

I was just glad Pooh survived his friendly-fire injury from CR's balloon-busting shot during the airborne hive-raid...
