Volunteers at the Holst Birthplace Museum have been researching the history of Gustav Holst while he served in Salonika, looking especially at what the composer wrote about daily life, including events and meals. One of the volunteers, Valerie McCoy, read through the letters he wrote to his wife Isobel and his daughter Imogen. Meanwhile the museum has been collecting recipes in advance of the ‘Food Away from the Western Front’ event to take place on 14 October. Click on the poster below for a larger version.
