Ted Hughes - 'Six Young Men'.
IP: 92.12.213.181


While researching local history around Hebden Bridge,West Yorkshire, I came across a story that may be of interest to you (and my apologies if you have heard it already). The poet Ted Hughes wrote a poem about WW1 called 'Six Young Men', which was apparently inspired by a photo of six friends taken shortly before the war.They were apparently friends of his father,William Henry Hughes, who I believe served with 1/6 Lancashire Fusiliers in Gallipoli and Ypres, and they enlisted in the same regiment. He survived the war, but (according to the poem) the six men in the photo were killed.
As far as I know, no one has identified any of the six men: I would love to find out who they were, but this is probably an impossible task.
If anyone has any information,please let me know, and if I discover anything more about them I will post it on this site.
