Until recently Ewart Alan Mackintosh was one of the many unknown war poets of the Great War. Ewart Alan Mackintosh fell in action on 21st November 1917 at Cambrai. Historians Colin Campbell and Rosalind Green brought him to public attention in 2004 with their biography of Mackintosh . His biographers unveiled much about the English born Scot’s life however still asked the question “how precisely did Alan Mackintosh die?” Whilst information presents itself about the circumstances lead up to the death, the events are unclear and ripe for reinterpretation. One hundred years after his death, with oral history testimony, a new analysis can be made of Mackintosh’s death and the McLennan family who became linked with the death of the Great Poet and further sacrifice at Cambrai in November 1917.
