|Title||Sergeants Davey and Worley: From Edmund Blunden's Minute Book.|
|Notes||Photograph of Sergeants Frank Worley, who became Edmund Blunden's much admired NCO and life-long friend, who inspired the poem 'Come On, My Lucky Lads', ran a fish shop in Worthing after the war, and died in 1954, and Davey, who was a friend and officer's servant in the army. Edmund notes that the men are pictured '(with a backcloth of Ypres, supplied at Poperinghe, early '17.)' The book was compiled by Blunden with the intention of providing complementary photographs supporting the narrative and poems of 'Undertones of War' (1928), and was inscribed 'E.B. New Year, 1935' while Blunden was living in North Oxford, a neighbour of Graham Greene.|
