TNA podcast: Adlestrop and Edward Thomas

The latest National Archives podcast from Kew is entitled Adlestrop: railways, poetry and the myths of 1914, about poet Edward Thomas. The blurb on the page states that Adlestrop is "one of the nation’s favourite poems", but I'll be honest and say I've never heard of it! The poet wrote the poem about a railway station in the countryside whilst at war in 1914 - he did not return.

To listen to the podcast visit or download from iTunes.

UPDATE: A TNA blog post also ties in with this - see (With thanks to David Underdown)
