A Signaller's War

The Sketchbook Diary of Pte L Ellis

Ed. David Langley

Underage at 17, Lawrence Ellis joined up to fight in 1915. He served first as a private in the Royal Field Artillery, then in the Corps of Royal Signallers on the Western Front, witnessing the aftermath of the Somme and action at Cambrai. Ellis kept a diary of his wartime experiences, from training to demobilization, to which he later added more detail and over 1,000 sketches: a vivid account of a young volunteer’s coming of age in the trenches.
