Apologies for using modern flags; if I can find or manufacture more period-appropriate icons than the modern flags for Germany and the parts of the former Austro-Hungarian and Russian Empires, I shall.

    Thanks Edward. Two others. Ronald Fraser (1888-1974), author of The Flying Draper (1924), Flower Phantoms (1926) and other fantasies, served in the Honourable Artillery Company from 1914, was seriously wounded at the Battle of Beaumont Hamel and was invalided out: his left arm and hand were permanently disabled. Guy Dent (1892-1954), author of the scientic romance Emperor of the If (1926) was a Flying Officer from March 1916, and seconded to the west African Regiment. Mark

  2. Edward, then there’s Philip George Chadwick, author of ‘The Death Guard’ – the SFE has an entry on him, though he remains a rather mysterious figure, so you’d probably only be able to list him under “they also served”.

    Dear Edward, just relaying the comments made on Farah’s post. Neither Guillaume Apollinaire nor Blaise Cendrars nor May Sinclair have individual entries in the SF Encyclopedia, so you may not want to give them too much prominence, but Sinclair was a friend to one of your writers, Wyndham Lewis. For the record, Apollinaire wrote one science fiction story, ‘The Moon King’ (1916), whilst Cendrars ‘cut-up’ the work of sf writer Gustave Le Rouge – an author whom he admired – in his prose-poem, ‘Kodak’ (1923). The anti-hero of Cendrars’ “Moravagine” (1926) ultimately believes himself to be a Martian. Sinclair, who volunteered as an ambulance driver, wrote two sf stories, ‘Where Their Fire is Not Quenched’ and ‘The Finding of the Absolute’ (both 1923). The former was anthologised by Jorge Luis Borges whilst the latter has been discussed by, amongst others, David Glover (in relation to Conrad and Ford’s “The Inheritors”) and David Seed.

    Edward, possibly this might provide you with some more period flags:

    Also, in my browser, the French and Ukrainian flags appear 5×5 times as large as the others.
