An Edinburgh golf club held potentially the "most powerful meeting" of English literature in the 20th century, new research has revealed.

It has now been discovered that war poets Wilfred Owen, Siegfried Sassoon and Robert Graves met at Baberton Golf Club in Juniper Green.

A university lecturer searched libraries and archives for clues to solve the mystery.

The answer was found in letters from 1917 at Southern Illinois University.
