France, April 24, Dear Folks:', No dottht you- have worried a little at. not hearing from mo more during the past few days, but I suppose you know that this was a pretty strenuous time-Uto beginning of the spring- offensive. Wo are out now for a few days rest, which we need, all right. Well, once more the Byng- Boys ha:i their usual hard part, to play, and they made good In the dashing and thorough manner as only the Byng Bnys can do it. The Canadians took every objective with comparative ease as compared with the Somruc,. although they lost a good many men at some points, mostly UtrougU trying to go on past their objective and running into our own barrage. The 16th, wh>rp most of the 113th lads are. were CL't up pretty badly, and some of my best pals are gone. George Piper, whom you vemember I used to wrestle with at Sarcee was killed. We were in close reserve when the first line of attack went over, when the objective was reached we were rushed in to consolidate the positions, and beat oft counter attacks. However^ Krltzy was completely routed and fell back for a couple of miles, so we went over the top and followed him. We didn't get into close quarters with him, but he bothered our advance all he could with machine guns and artillery, and we lost quite a few men. We advanced three times, digging ourselves in on the new positions. We went forward about two miles. The weather was fierce and the rain and mud hindered our advance. There was no chance for shelter, rest, or sleep for a number of days, and Frit* had us under observation and pounded us with everything he had, while we were far out or touch with our own guns and couldn't shut him up. So you see we had a pretty stiff time of it, �nd I'm glad it's over. I don't think we will have such a hard trip again. There seems to be no doubt as to the success of the spring offensive and the end seems just a matter of months. '*� I have seen hundreds of German prisoners and have of course been all through country that he had held a few hours previous. Our artillery barrage was something awful., There (s no wonder*the Germans had little fight left in them when we went over the' parapet. irial of Union Pacific standards will satisfy all who travel of their superiority.
