Work Overview

If Not In This World takes its inspiration from a letter to my great-great grandmother, Emma Robins, by my great-great uncle, Leslie Robins. He wrote it whilst recuperating from gun-shot wounds sustained at the Battle of Pozieres in August, 1916. It was to be his final letter home; he was killed in February 1917. The piece also features correspondence between Emma and the Australian War Office, as she vainly tries to find a special keep-sake she gave her son before he left Australia.
