Poems written from a World War One hospital ship. Edward Knoblock - a playwright - changed his surname from Knoblauch in 1916 and served in the British Army in World War One. In 1917 he was on a hospital ship and published 'Cot 5', 21 poems dedicated to Staff-Surgeon James McCutcheon, R.N. A second edition was published in 1918. These moving poems portray life and death among the wounded, the excitement of letters, the unflinching work of the staff, the grief and sorrow.
