About the Author

Bill Evershed joined the Navy in 1953 as a Boy Seaman in the RNVR. He transferred to the RN and retired as a Commander in 1978. He was subsequently the Administrator of Guildford Cathedral from which he retired in 2001. He has an interest in military history and has previously researched and presented a series of one-man plays on topics including the Anglo-Zulu War of 1879; the 1942 Royal Marines Commando raid by canoe upon German shipping in Bordeaux; and the Yangtse River Incident in 1949 involving HMS Amethyst. These presentations were for the purpose of raising funds for Armed Forces charities. Performing Rights for A Flanders Poppy will go to the national charity 'Seafarers UK'

Reviews

'A stark reminder of the Royal Naval Division's struggle on the Western Front ... a moving and sensitive story and would highly recommend it to anyone interested in social, military and naval history.' Flagship Magazine - Seafarers UK. 'Bill Evershed has found a dramatic way both of teaching us about this part of trench life and evoking our sympathy for what would today be seen as a profound miscarriage of justice ...it is both dramatic and very educational,' Naval Review
