The Whistling Dragon

Three hundred horses galloping,

Three hundred helmeted men,

Led by a flying Dragon

An open-mouthed whistling Dragon.

















A poetry pamphlet containing this poem by Frances Grant, who also provided the cover illustration.

The poem describes the use of the Draconarius in a Roman battle against the Britons.

The Draconarius is a decorated Dragon's head mounted on a long pole, carried into battle by a soldier on foot or on horseback. Inside the head are reeds, which, when turned into the wind, whistle or scream.

The pamphlet is letterpress printed in a limited edition of only twenty copies.
