Literature: Libby Horner, Brangwyn at WAR! (Horner and Goldmark, 2014) p.88

The war resulted in a huge increase in blindness - partly a consequence of the deployment of chemical warfare. By recalling Rodin's Burghers of Calais (1884) Brangwyn's wartime design explores the themes of dignity and sacrifice.
