Wilfred Owen is perhaps the most remembered of the First World War poets. Born in Oswestry in 1893, he travelled to France in 1916 and profoundly troubled by his experience of the trenches, went on to write some of the most powerful denouncements of the horrors and hypocrisies of war. On 4 November 1918, a week before Armistice, he was killed on the banks of the Sambre and Oise Canal.
