Richard Dehan was the pseudonym used by Anglo-Irish playwright and novelist Clotilde Graves (1863-1932), known as Clo Graves. As the daughter of Majory William Henry Graves of the 18th Royal Irish Regiment, she was familiar with miliary life, which is reflected in several of the stories in this collection of short stories. As an adult, Graves studied art and worked at the British Museum galleries, which probably informed the character of the Scottish artist known as the MacWaugh, who appears in several other stories.
