    It was such a privilege to judge the 2016 Walter Stone award. The winner was author Richard Yaxley, whose remarkable memoir Homecoming, with its eloquent language, placed the reader and narrator with 'young Tom Stott' on the farm and eventually at Gallipoli; explored the nature of war and nationalism, the meaning of life and love, and effectively linked the Great War to the current 'War on Terror'.
