A Journal of Impressions in Belgium

A Journal of Impressions in Belgium

May Sinclair

In 1914, at the age of 51, the novelist and poet May Sinclair volunteered to leave the comforts of England to go to the Western Front, joining the Munro Ambulance Corps ministering to wounded Belgian soldiers in Flanders. Her first piece of writing on returning to England was A Journal of Impressions in Belgium, a fictionalised record of her experiences and perhaps one of the first wartime women’s diaries published in Britain in 1915.
