Moss Vale school boy, 19 years of age,

France after eight months in hospital
from his previous wounds in July,
1916), writing home to his sisters after
an absence of two years, says:—

it ; about 12 o'olock at night we moved
up to attack and laid In the frost

boys were crying with the cold, but at
4a.m. we got out and started to ad-

machine guns and rifles starting going ;
we got up to within about a hundred
yards and then charged with the
bayonet, and then our turn began ; we

ran and fell in all directions. So after
taking the road we swung around and
took the village, which he blew up
with mines while the fight was going
on. We dug in outside, and my mate

us to sit in. We sat there in the one

it snowed, and there was nobody more
