A First World War nurse's journal containing poignant poetry from fallen Tommies has been unearthed 106 years on.
Helen Dryerre kept the black leather album which she gave to dozens of convalescing soldiers to sign, write and draw in.
Some British troops penned poetry from their hospital beds, while others did patriotic illustrations and one made a charming sketch of her.
Tragically, three of the wounded men who wrote in the album were all later killed on the same day during the Battle of the Loos on October 13, 1915.
