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.
