A Poem in the Observer

From page 168 of the transcript:

Tom was in good spirits.  At the time of the Munich crisis (October 1938), one of his poems appeared in the Sunday Observer much to his and our pleasure.  It was the only time in the lives of most of his children that the suggestion he was a poet actually seemed true.

Another list for me to keep are the two or three references in the book to mentions of someone in the newspaper.  I assume the only place to find 1938 copies of the Observer will be in the British Library, so I will have to take a trip there soon, and seek out the poem in question.  It could be added to the book as an illustration.
