often noticed when a man got killed as

if he was much happier where he had gone

the other Two were still alive so one

I cut his Putters off and found he had

some very bad leg wounds and the other

had a Piece out of his Shoulder and

they happened to be Three sworn Pals

all joined up together and as Fate

would have it they were all killed

together as the other Two died very

Shortly after getting to Hospital as

Lock Jaw set in with Both of them

but what struck me most was when the

Doctor was dressing their Wounds they

were asking me if their chum was all

right I said yes hes allright he is

Sleeping anyway they were in Terribly Pain

and the Doctor gave them an Ingection

before they went to Hospital as I stated

they Both DIed so I was the only one

saved and of 4 of us sitting outside the

Billet their was all the Letter which

they had just read before the shell

burst and the Parcels cake and sardines

which we were just going to Enjoy all

gone west with them Poor Fellows I

had to get the Dead Body outside and

the room where I had dragged them

was just like a Slaughter house where

they  had Bled so I washed it all down

with several Pails of water and the

Poor People who Lived in the House were

so Panic Stricken that they were all

Lying under Sofas Beds and anywhere
