The Battalion Runner on the Duckboard Track

The Battalion Runner on the Duckboard Track, suggest 1922
Oil on canvas, 60.9 cm x 50.8 cm

The visual style suggests an early 1920s date rather than a 1918–19 date. However, if this and ‘Feeds Round!’ were both 1922, why was neither included in the one-man show in 1923?
This work, reproduced in Richard Cork, A Bitter Truth: Avant-Garde Art and the Great War (London and New Haven: Yale University Press, 1994), appears to be lost.
