the Head it had struck a Tree and

ricocheted and blew his Brains out

I lifted him up as all his Brains were

out he lived about 2 Hours but Died

without Waking up Poor Fellow one of

the Best and we had several more

casualty have some boy had other very

Nice Blighty ones we never took no notice

of Casualty now as we were expecting

them more or less now as the Sergeant

who had been killed was being taken out

on a Stretcher the Bearers had to hold

the Stretcher over the Top it was a wonder

Fritz did not have another Shot at Him

anyway we were glad to get relieved

after our 4 Days was up to go back

to our tumbled down Barns again and

Take our Equipment off we were not

allowed to undress now as we were

Still in reserve Trenches as they called

this Place but you could Take your

Equipment off and have a wash that was

a lot to the Tahnkfull for we were relieved

by our other Half Batalion the Following

Day I had another Shock our Sergeant

Major came and told me to go with

Jack one of my chums and Low a Fellow

in a Blanket for Burial who had been

Blown to Pieces not a very nice job but

someone had to do it so me and Jack

went to the Barn where they had Put
