Contributions to the Weekly Dispatch, 1920-21
pp. 54, stapled booklet, 1969, reprinted by the Henry Williamson Society, 1983
The very earliest published writings of HW, which appeared in the Weekly Dispatch between July 1920 and January 1921, during his short-lived Fleet Street career. They include ‘The Country Week’ (short nature sketches) and ‘On the Road’ (a weekly column on light cars offering occasionally somewhat dubious advice!). HW’s fictionalised account of this period appears in The Innocent Moon (1961).
The booklet has been revised, with an new introduction by John Gregory, and published as an e-book with the title On the Road.
