Although a fierce opponent of British rule over Ireland, Francis Ledwidge joined up after his girlfriend had left him. He wrote many of his famous poems during this last phase of his life. He was killed during the Battle of Langemark in the summer of 1917. Ledwige rests at Artillery Wood Cemetery and has his own memorial close by.
