Capt James Lloyd (right) of the Welsh Regiment with his two brothers, John (left) and Geoff. He was wounded at Mametz Wood in 1916 and recruited by MI7b in 1917, joining A.A. Milne producing what they thought was counter- propaganda.<br />
<br />
A book of writings co-authored by AA Milne colourfully reflecting on his time spent as a First World War propagandist is being displayed for the first time ever. <br />
<br />
'The Green Book' was written by the Winnie the Pooh author and fellow members of MI7b - a little-known intelligence branch of the War Office that produced propaganda. <br />
<br />
When the war ended officials attempted to destroy all traces of the secret department but four years ago 150 documents were unearthed inside the attic of one of its members. <br />
<br />
Now the ultra-rare copy, which is one of only two that exist, has been placed on display at the Royal Signals Museum in Blandford, Dorset.
