Leslie Coulson

Author Code: ELLC

Born: Jul. 19, 1889 - Kilburn, London, England

Died: Oct. 8, 1916 - Le Transloy, France

Educated at a Norfolk boarding school, Coulson joined the Evening News as a reporter after leaving school. He moved to the Evening Standard in 1914, but when war broke out shortly after, he enlisted in the 2/2nd Battalion of the Royal Fusiliers. Coulson developed mumps and was hospitalised before he saw any action. It was in hospital that he wrote his first poem, A Soldier in Hospital. He saw service in Malta and Egypt before taking part in the battle of Gallipoli, where he was slightly wounded. He went to France in 1916 and his battalion was disbanded and some members joined the 1/12th Battalion - the Rangers. They were immediately thrown in to the Somme offensive. On October 7th, the Rangers were employed in the battle for Transloy Ridges and Coulson was shot in the chest and died later that day. The manuscript of his best-known poem, Who Made the Law?, was found in his possessions. His poems were published posthumously in 1917 as From an Outpost and Other Poems by his father and the book sold 10,000 copies in its first year.
