Reflections of War -  War Poetry by David Lilburn




A special thank you to Dez Northover for his very gratefully received contribution to pay for the publishing of this book.

To Jennifer Millar-Smith for her continued support in getting my work to the publishers.


Thanks to my friends and family for their support in sticking with me through my work. A massive thank you to all Royal  Marines, their families and friends, and all serving military for giving me the inspiration to write on their behalf.


I have been writing poetry for over 33 years now and get my inspiration from the loved ones and friends of our close Royal Marines family.


I am 57 years old and live in Brighton, East Sussex. I have over 100 years of Royal Marines blood in my family; I spent 25 years, my father, grandfather and great grandfather also serving our great corps.I have two wonderful sons, Dale and Ashton and I work full time for a software company in Brighton and dedicate my spare time to two charities  Help our Wounded Royal Marines and Supporting Arms and UK Homes 4 Heroes Pride & Passion both of which the profits of my book  will go to help.
