Wilfrid Wilson GibsonBorn in Hexham, England, Wilfred Wilson Gibson was a friend of Siegfried Sassoon and a close friend of Rupert Brooke. Prior to the war, Gibson worked as a social worker in London's East End. He also published poems in a number of Georgian poetry collections, and wrote a play, Daily Bread, that was produced in 1910. Rejected four times before finally enlisting as a private, Gibson served as an infantryman on the Western Front. After the war, he continued writing poetry and plays. His work centered around the impoverished conditions of laborers in villages and industrial mills.
