The lollowing letter fi'om Sorijeanl Jock ul the Lcthliriclgo ma- chine gun section, HOW in the trench- es, tells how tiie plucky youth gained tint decoration of the distinguished couducI medal. "On the 10th of May relieved' the----- at I'Ystuiiorl. The trench we took over we newly captured from the Germans, so they were not in. the best of condition. Well, wo ull set in ami worked very .hard. for. thrse days, having very-little sleep and shells falling all the time1; it'was'nothing more than a death trap. "Well, on tin: 31sb there wore rum- ours floating around that we were-to make ,vt attack that night, hut, none of uj; were sure of it, not until -1 o'clock, then 1 got an order to so up titc communication line and lind a place for my gun. Well that was not a very job, as thorn was a loy of the trench broken down, so I was exposed to the rille lire of the Germans, but 1 knew I had to go, so I said, well here goes, and made a dash for the trench 1 then had to walk up to my knees in water before I got there, so you can -imagine the mess 1 was in. I in the trericli and found the- trench officer and ask-1 .cd him where lie wanted the gun he could" not give me a very satisfactory answer so I went ahead my sell and placed it, which I found was very good afterward, it was only about twenty to thirty yards away from thn (iVrnian trench. After I made sure and marked my place I went baok for my crew and gun. I got there I explained the situation us well as I could and told them what tu do. By this time the final bombardment was going on, and there- were trench dugouts1 and Ger- mans flying everywhere, .so the -offic- er laid down his men away backfill case any of our shell fell short 'they would be safe, Itut as luck would have it I had to get this gun placul for the attack, which was very hard at only thirty yards while one of the men and myself were making the em- placement one of the'shells burst over the trench alniost suffocating some of the boys. At first 1 thought it was some gas they had shot at us, so we als put our smoke helmets on, but in a short time It cleared away and we continued our work. It was a very funny sensation waiting there not knowing the minute the Germans would be coming down the trench, he- cause we were both in the same, with just a few hags between us. "Well, I got it all and ready- by 8 o'clock and the attack wa.s to come off at 8.30, so I had a few minutes' rest. I crawled into a dug- out and lay there not knowing the minute I was going to be blown" to atoms, and as I lay there all sorts ot; things went through my mind, I could see everyone at home quite plain, everyone teamed to be quite happy, and then a shell would burst, closo and make me duck. "At last the time came, and I went to my .gun. They were creeping up out ihicK, anil 1 was keeping up an overhead lire to prevent them as j much as I could when all oi. a sudden I up they got and made for the trench. 1 Well, I can say this, that the j mans did not wait to ask any ;-hine gun brigade, field THE NEAL WAY Overcomes Cause and Effects of DRINK OR DRUGS In. u faw days at the NEAL.
