Cross between the Antlers: A Chaplain's Sporting Memoir of The Great War

Robert Wilkinson and Ambrose de Lisle

“There is little of the War’s conduct, save for a reflection on certain individuals. The writer is an army chaplain Fr Francis Fleming but there is scant coverage of his ministry. What we have is a story of country sport enjoyed in the most unlikely setting, behind the front line, by a man who was a poacher’s collaborator, a whipper-in to a motley pack of hounds and certainly a contented fisherman.”


These accounts, often humorous,  are brought  together in a well illustrated book which give a completely novel insight into life at the front.


This book’s proceeds will go to the charity ‘Hounds for Heroes’ which provides trained assistance dogs to disabled men and women of the armed forces and the emergency services.
