In order to save their feet from be- ing lacerated, the soldiers took the shirts from their backs, and, tearing them into strips, wound them round their feet. .The .incident'was remem- bered, and the white spats now worn by the gallant Highlanders -were granted in honor of their heroic march and defence.

There were engaged three squad- rons of oiirs, the 18th Hussars, and :he 6th Dragoons. The "guns were dropping shftlls.all. around us, as we charged.. We all went mad, and one doesn't take too much notice of what actually happens In such times. It was just 'hell. We charged right up to the guns, sticking the Germans like pigs. Some shouted 'Mercy, it was no good. They had o have it. We cleaned up the lot, and rat the guns out of action and rode jack.

The gallant fellow, one of whose legs had recently amputated, was toying with a German helmet, evidently a trophy of the war. said the visitor, "I suppose you killed your "Well, modestly replied the soldier, "you see it was like this: He ay on the field pretty near me with" in awfu' bad wound.
