The Quick and the Dead: Upcoming book

Richard van Emden will be publishing a book later this year about the Great War families left without a father or husband.  Although stories of members of our family do not feature, some may recognise the cover.

A friend of the author saw the picture when I used it to illustrate a post on the Great War Forum and consequently Richard Van Emden approached me asking if he could use the image.  My brother and I agreed (almost two and a half years ago).
