This poem is one of several for which Alfred included an explanatory note when it was published in War Sonnets and Songs. He wrote: "Lieutenant Smirnoff was in command of a battery of Russian Artillery in an engagement near Lake Mazur. At the end of the battle, his battery was flanked on the right by reinforced German infantry, and on the left by machine guns. Behind him was the lake, cutting off retreat. Determined not to surrender, Lieutenant Smirnoff galloped at full speed with his battery into the lake, where every man and beast was drowned."

This poem is one of several for which Alfred included an explanatory note when it was published in War Sonnets and Songs. He wrote: "The butchering of women and infants, the crucifixion of little children and British soldiers, and other ghastly and bloody deeds committed by the Germans, whose frightful and abominable acts are said by the finding of the War Commission to surpass in horror anything that has been perpetrated in civilized warfare for three centuries." The sinking of the Cunard liner helped bring the United States into the war. Link to Wikipedia entry about the ship.

When first pubished, the sub-title referred to Slow as being 'the Wiltshire Dialect Poet', but when it was re-published in Selected Poems, this sub-title was amended to simply 'Wilton'. Slow is probably best known as the author of a poem about the origins of Wiltshire's Moonraker legend.

This poem is one of several for which Alfred included an explanatory note when it was published in War Sonnets and Songs. He wrote: "Julius Caesar fought many fierce battles with the ancient Belgians, and, notably, one on the banks of the river Axona, now the Aisne. He described the Belgians as the bravest of all the peoples of Western Europe."
