"Tommy's Tunes" is a small volume, poorly printed in wartime. The music images are only about 3 1/2 wide and the notes are consequently very small and hard to scan.
In the back are advertisements for two other volumes of WW1 poetry; "Soldier Poets, Songs of the Fighting Men," compiled by Galloway Kyle, and "The Undying Splendour," by the late Sergt. J. W. Streets (12th batt. York & Lancaster Regt. A 'big' Public School Edition of the former was being prepared; so it may not be as rare as "Tommy's Tunes."
