Crosbie Garstin

Author Code: ECRG

Born: May 7, 1887 - Mount Vernon, Cornwall, England

Died: Apr. 19, 1930 - Salcombe Estuary, England

He was educated at Brandon House, Elstow School and in Germany. As a young man he worked as a bronco buster in Montana and as a lumberjack in Canada. He was widely travelled, visiting China, Japan, Hawaii and Morocco. His father sent him to South Africa in 1912, and there he managed a cattle ranch. When war broke out in 1914, he joined King Edward's Light Horse as a private. When the unit left fro France in 1915, he was promoted to lance corporal. On September 14, 1915 he was given a field promotion to second lieutenant. He took part in the battle of Loos and saw action on the Italian Front until, in 1916, he was appointed an intelligence officer to Dublin, during the unrest there. He began contributing to Punch and produced various volumes of verse during the ensuing years. His poetry was well-received. His death was a mystery as he obviously drowned in Salcombe Estuary when his row boat capsized. Despite being a strong swimmer, his body was never found. His works include Vagabond Verses (1917), The Mud Larks (1918), The Ballad of the Royal Ann (1922), The Coasts of Romance (1922), The Penlake Trilogy, The Owl's House (1923), High Noon (1925), The West Wind (1926), The Dragon and the Lotus (1928) and China Seas (1930).
