When you see millions of the mouth less dead Across your dreams in pale battalions go, Say not soft things as other men have said, That you’ll remember. For you need not so.

|Birth:||19th May, 1895|
|Death:||13th October, 1915|
Born in Aberdeen, Scotland, he was the son of William Ritchie Sorley. He was educated, like Siegfried Sassoon, at Marlborough College. At Marlborough College Sorley's favourite pursuit was cross-country running in the rain, a theme evident in many of his pre-war poems, including "Rain" and "The Song of the Ungirt Runners". In keeping with his strict Protestant upbringing, Sorley had strong views on right and wrong, and on two occasions volunteered to be punished for breaking school rules.
