Siegfried Sassoon's notebook and diary to go on display | 30-Jul-10

The notebook in which Siegfried Sassoon wrote 'A Soldier's Declaration' is to go on show at Cambridge University, as part of the exhibition Dream Voices.

It will be displayed alongside his diary, in which he details his first days on the Somme.

Cambridge University paid £1.25m for Sassoon's personal archive, which also includes work sent to him by fellow poet Robert Graves.
