5 Kennedy, G.A. Studdert (Woodbine Willie) Rough Rhymes of a Padre
London Hodder and Stoughton 1918 Fifth Edition Paperback Fair 
94 pages. "Some of these poems were printed at my request and gained great popularity amongst all ranks in the B.E.F. I feel sure that through these homely verses many a man has come to realise for the first time some deep truth of the Sorrow of God in this world's greatest agony. The author has had experience in all parts of this battle as a chaplain and knows and loves the men for whom he writes." - Llewellyn H. Gwynne, Deputy Chaplain General, France, 1918. Dedicated to the officers and men of the 46th and 24th Infantry Divisions. Proceeds of this volume went to St. Dunstan's Hostel for Blinded Soldiers. Pencil and ink writing atop Table of Contents. Light pencil writing upon back cover. Minimal markings to contents. Covers protected by aged clear plastic laminate. Yellowed tape repairs to backstrip and inside front cover. This copy appears to have been frequently relied upon, thus it bears considerable wear which, we feel, adds to its character. A worthy copy of this important WWI memento.
