Lt Col Mike Richardson OBE, Secretary, Damerham and Western Downland Branch, who has also published a book Keeping the Old Flag Flying, the WWI story of Kenneth Foyster, who served in the 7th Canadian Battalion, based on his comprehensive memoir. Kenneth was in the First Canadian Contingent, wounded and captured at 2nd Ypres, imprisoned in Germany then interned in Switzerland until the end of the war. His reports and insights during this fascinating and seldom publicised incarceration are fascinating. Here is a review by the Western Front Association. https://www.bookdepository.com/Keeping-Old-Flag-Flying-Mike-Richardson/9781912694396.
