Rhymes of the Red Triangle was an unusual 1917 book: the red triangle was the sign of the  Young Men’s Christian Association Huts and the poems (by Hampden Gordon) and drawings (by Joyce Dennys) cover subjects such as Concerts, Night Patrol, The Washer-Up, Breakages, Accounts and Letters Home. The interest for us nowadays, apart from the historical one, lies in the drawings since Joyce Dennys (1893-1991) became well-known as an artist and as the author of Henrietta’s War. This is the frontispiece.
