Information/Write-up

WW1 poems by Robert Service, recited by Pete Dumville with music performed by members of the Castle Pipers, Elephant and Castle, London, SE1, UK. Battle sounds used with kind permission of the Imperial War Museum Archives, London.

Robert Service was one of the great First World War poets (nicknamed the Kipling of Canada). Raised in Scotland, he emigrated to Canada when he was young.

Robert, who was in the RAMC, survived the War but his brother, Lt. Albert Service (52 Btn Canadian Infantry, Manitoba Regt) was killed on 18 August 1916.

All poems on this CD (from his book 'The Rhymes of a Red Cross Man_ were dedicated to Albert who is buried in 'Railway Dugouts' cemetary, approximately 1 km from the Lille Gate, Ypres, Belgium (N336).

This CD is also dedicated to William 'Bill" Link and the many others like him who have fought and lost the battle against cancer. All proceeds from this CD will therefore be donated to cancer charities.
