Robert Gilson: Memoirs of an Infantry Officer (film)

This documentary film on the life and letters of Robert Quilter Gilson (Old Edwardian), who died on the first day of the Battle of the Somme, was produced by two former pupils of King Edward’s School, Zander and Elliot Weaver. Robert Quilter Gilson was the son of the Headmaster, Robert Cary Gilson, and the closest friend of JRR Tolkien, who also fought in the war.
