My chapter, comprising some 7,000 words with 4 plates, focussed on letters written by certain British war artists while at the Front as serving soldiers to wives and family. I concentrated on: Eric Kennington, Charles Sargeant Jagger and CRW Nevinson. I also touched upon letters written by Kennington and Nevinson while working in France as official war artists in 1917-18 to fellow artists still in London such as William Rothenstein, who were waiting for an opportunity to become an official British war artist in France.
