Edmund Blunden in Poperinge - December, 1916
from Undertones of War, page 147:
By the station, in a brick storehouse among amny spacious buildings belonging to the hop factors, the "Red Roses" in song and dance never ceased to gild the clouds of fate. The simple legend BOX OFFICE had its epic majesty, and one still sees the muddy track leading thither across the railway as the high road to Parnassus, and hurries to the feast.
