Dr W. N. Taylor

1919 — 2013

W.N. Taylor was born in 1919. He studied medicine at Edinburgh University, and was a Medical Officer in the 81st West African Division in Burma in World War 2. After the end of the war, he returned to Edinburgh to become a psychiatrist.

His poems are not 'war poems' in the ordinary sense. They are thoughts and memories of the periphery, and reflections in subsequent years.
