Royston Men .....“Are Black and Fierce & Strange of Mouth”
Royston Men .....“Are Black and Fierce & Strange of Mouth”
When Rupert Brooke wrote “Royston men in the far south are black and fierce and strange of mouth” little could he have realised that within two years those men would be being slaughtered in the trenches of WW1. Brooke himself did not survive the war so would never have seen this monument to those same men. For an explanation of the title see LinkExternal link
