Rudyard Kipling and the Great War - Dr Rodney Attwood.

At the outbreak of the war Rudyard Kipling was a most popular author , he wrote propaganda pamphlets and stories during the war and some poetry.

His only son John was killed at Loos in 1915 and his body was not found , Kipling spent a large part of his life after this trying to find out what happened to John and ensure that he had a proper burial. 

Later he worked with the IWGC , suggesting many of the phrases that we find in the CWGC cemeteries to this day.
