Bruco tells of liis exciting experiences at the front dur- ing which he was recommended for the V C. IJruce says Duchess of 'Connaught's H. 52, Taplow Bucks, Monday, Nov. 13, 1018. My Dear Mr. Hardio: Received your most welcome letter a few days: ago, and was so pleased to think you hail libt fpririiltGT me. I expect you have heard weird rumors in regard to iriy -wounds, weii, I'll just relate them to you. I was wounded in battle of ybres; ifh'effiattle lasting about jit- teen. "days'V we "having had the first and ihird divisions pretty "well cut up so the second division was reltev- St. Eloi to give them a hand, and before we finished .'.up all the di- visions: wore pretty well cut ,up. I was; hit three times inside of an hour, first hit 'being on the right arm passing into the hand and shoulder. I could -have gone out then, but we expected an attack and I knew I was fit enough to swing the lead into them so I told the Sergt. I would stay. My arm was 'becoming numb. The ar- tillery fire at this time was at its best, trees and corruption were flying wide, and handsome. About in three-ctuartcrs of an hour Xroin the I'tlnie I was' first hit I got another, it was a corker, the shraptiel passed through the elbow Joint of my left arm and through the wrist, Breaking the joing to smithereeni and the wrist bones, it also pass- ed through the instep of my foot and out the sole of my boot, another piece .passed through my ankle; these two wounds caused the loss of my leg Just a minute or so afterwards, while getting dressed, I was hit again and i lifted clear out of the trench, knock- ing the stretcher bearer giddy with my shoulder, I landed in a shell hole ifull of dirty water, dead were lying all around. Well I got out and crawl- ed back into the trench. I found that I had "been hit in the right leg pretty hard in the left knee, previous none of these wounds had been dressed, tho reason being that the stretcher bearers kept being blown :o pieces and I <-un assure you the mud and water 'lid not help my wo.unds any.

Well, was coming over, I in n fix. being just able to crawl, but at that, I got my rifle and handed it to one of the boys as it was loaded and it saved them loading. I was afraid they would get over and bayonet me as I was get- ting helpless, so Jack Lemon and Hughle Robinson put me In a dugout with a dead Highlander, and here I lay for about eleven hours. The wounds began to tell and the poison started to work. My God. it was awful agony. Well, tho boys managed to safely to a dressing station tjt 8POKANE BEAT BUDS IN P. C. H. l_.

Here I had my first amputation seven inches below the knee. Then I was shipped to London whore the leg was amputated at the knee joint. At no time was 'my arm safe from, being removed, nor at no time did they'think 1 would have my right leg, as gangrene poisoning set in. To make a long story short, I suf- fered something awful for three months having had 23 operations. I had'one on .the arm just lately. At times I often, wished I had passed away, but now I am well. The other night the boys gave me a bath and counted S2 wounds on me, so guess Fritz didn't miss me much. I guess he was trying to get even foi that St. Eloi bout.
