"We have just had 10 days in the roughest part of the line & we caught it pretty hot. I had a pretty close shave myself. I was buried for about an hour. A shell burst right on top of the trench & blew everything on top of me. It was a bit too close for my liking"
"We had a fairly lively time last May at Bullecourt but we didn't lose too many men and we done a lot of damage. I had a nice mornings shooting. There were a few Fritz's getting back out of the shell holes. I was certain of getting one"
"You might just as well know what missing means in that charge. None of our men had a possible chance of being taken prisoner & you can put all the missing as killed out of this Battalion. Pat was a game as could be. I am sure he wasn't afraid to die."
