During the First World War, two of England’s greatest twentieth century war poets met at Craiglockhart War Hospital. Siegfried Sassoon was a decorated war hero hospitalised after protesting against the continuing war.
Wilfred Owen was a victim of shell shock and accused of cowardice. Returning to the front, Sassoon was shot in the head but survived.
Owen went on to win the military cross, die in the trenches seven days before Armistice Day and receive posthumous fame as one of the greatest war poets.
