Julian Grenfell

a.k.a. Julian Henry Francis Grenfell

Author Code: EJHG

Born: Mar. 30, 1888 - London, England

Died: May 26, 1915 - Boulogne, France

Educated at Eton and Balliol College, Oxford, Grenfell took a commission in the Royal Dragoons in 1910. He served in India and South Africa until the outbreak of World War I in 1914. He was posted to Flanders and saw action at the First Battle of Ypres. In November 1914, he was awarded the DSO (Distinguished Service Order) for action against German snipers. During the Second Battle of Ypres he was seriously wounded by shrapnel at Hooge and died a few days later in hospital at Boulogne. Three days after his death, his poem, Into Battle was published in the Times accompanying his obituary. The poem became one of the most popular of the war. Grenfell had no literary aspirations, although he did write some other poetry and a few essays while at Balliol. His diary, which was discovered after his death, contains some interesting aspects.
