'When Wilfred met Siegfried'

On August 18th we remembered the 100th Anniversary of the day Wilfred Owen and Siegfried Sassoon first met at Craiglockhart War Hospital for Officers, now part of Edinburgh Napier University.
We heard the war poems they composed there in the summer of 1917, recited by Sam Gray of the Wilfred Owen Association and David Wilson of the Siegfried Sassoon Fellowship, with extracts from their letters and diaries, read by Yvonne Morris.
