Siegfried Sassoon and the third arrival, a few days later, was Captn. Robert Graves. Adams was the first of these three to publish his memoirs of service with the 1st Battalion. “Nothing of Importance – a record of 8 months at the front with a Welsh Battalion October 1915 to June 1916” was written whilst convalescing in England having been wounded in June 1916. His was the only record to be published in book form whilst the war was still being fought. He returned to the front in January 1917 and was mortally wounded a month later.
