In Collection: Tom Kettle collection, 1914-1938
Description: Kettle talks of the importance of countering the strong pro-German sentiment of various publications; he explains the difference between recruiting in England and in Ireland, the 'sort of inheritance of anti-English feeling' in Ireland which has to be overcome, and details his own efforts in speaking and writing 'to press home every aspect of the Belgian case'. He emphasises the importance of producing 'a cheap, accessible counter-literature' to put the Allied side. He talks of his motivations for fighting this war. 'What I saw in Belgium laid on me a duty from which there is no escape'. He expresses warm gratitude to Hammond for his kindness.
