Fiercely nationalistic, at times blatantly Jingoistic and politically incorrect by modern-day standards, The Unwanted reflects the passions of a man who was determined to sarve his country during the First World War in any capacity he could regardless of rank or pay. As it turned out, he did it best by growing potatoes When Major John McKendrick Hughes, O.C., C Company, 151 Battalion, Canadian Expeditionary Force and his unit reached Shorncliffe in late 1915, he and the other officers were bluntly informed by the British that they were "unwanted"--officers deemed "surplus to establishment." Determined to contribute to the war effort, John became one of three Corps Agricultural Officers (AO) with the British 2nd Army, charged with growing vegetables and other foodstuffs to feed the troops.
