In 1915, having completed his Law degree, Arthur Dean enlisted in the army to serve in World War 1. He was sent to the Western Front, where he fought in the famous Battle of Pozieres. While there, he wrote a number of rhyming verse poems. Some of these were published in the trench newspaper, ʻThe Rising Sunʼ. One, ʻThe Brigadierʼs Horseʼ, won Arthur a prize of ₤3, and he received the news in a letter from war historian CEW Bean.
Born in Merino in western Victoria in 1893, this son of a country school teacher and his wife eventually became a Supreme Court Judge, and Chancellor of the University of Melbourne. He was knighted in 1960, and died in 1970.
None of the poems has been published since, and they have never been published together. Now his grandson, Stephen Whiteside (also a rhyming poet), has published Arthur Deanʼs poems as a book.
