Nigel Westlake’s The Glass Soldier was inspired by the life of Nelson Ferguson, who served in France as a field ambulance officer in World War I. Originally written as the score for Hannie Rayson’s play of the same name, the final piece in this all-Australian program will be narrated by broadcaster Derek Guille.
