Poem ~ Paper

Arthur Roberts was one of many of the unheralded and sadly yes - forgotten - soldiers of The Great War - Arthur was Scottish and he was black - the War was truly a global conflict with most colonials sending troops and materiel - troops came from British French and Italian colonies and dominions - to name but a few of the oft-forgotten Allies and Associates who were asked and contributed men and materiel : India - Nepal - Africa - Japan - Portugal - Bolivia - Brazil - China - Cuba - Czechoslovakia... Read More Arthur Roberts was one of many of the unheralded and sadly yes - forgotten - soldiers of The Great War - Arthur was Scottish and he was black - the War was truly a global conflict with most colonials sending troops and materiel - troops came from British French and Italian colonies and dominions - to name but a few of the oft-forgotten Allies and Associates who were asked and contributed men and materiel : India - Nepal - Africa - Japan - Portugal - Bolivia - Brazil - China - Cuba - Czechoslovakia - Newfoundland - Ecuador - Greece - Guatemala - Haiti - Hejaz - Honduras - Liberia - Nicaragua - Panama - Peru - Poland - Rumania - Serb-Croatia - Slovene - Siam - Uruguay - Hong Kong - Gibraltar - South Africa - Barbados - Jamaica - Trinidad and Tobago - British Guiana - British Honduras - Grenada - Bahamas - St. Lucia - St. Vincent - Leeward Islands - Gambia – Ghana – Nigeria - Southern Cameroon - Sierra Leone – Kenya – Uganda – Tanganyika – Zanzibar - Northern Rhodesia - Southern Rhodesia – Nyasa-land – Lesotho – Botswana - Swaziland – Sudan - Egypt - quite likely there are more than are mentioned here ... though their individual contributions were comparatively minor to the historically well-know combatants - they nonetheless assisted with what they had and could - their courageous and valiant efforts - bravery and sacrifices are far too often marginalized and forgotten in the history books which is unacceptable - let this Poem be In Memoriam to all the too often unnamed "others" who fought and died in the The Great War without recognition - Lest We Forget them as well ... I myself came to know of this "other Arthur" from Bill and Eleanor Christie who sent along a short article about this forgotten soldier - the classic story - his 1917 Diary had been found in the dusty attic boxed away and recently made public - you can read more about his story with a Google search - Bill Christie of course is the nephew of Arthur Anderson - the Canadian soldier whom I researched and wrote about in my textbooks
