A LUCKY;, HALF CROWN. In a later letter, describing the battle of Modder River, Corporal Webb say" :-Our commanding officer was killed early in the fight. He was about fifty yards behind me, shot through the neck. It was something awful. We advanced on the enemy's position about half-past five in the morning, and it was just like walking into the jaws of death. The shells and rifle bullets fell and burst around us like a lot of hailstones falling. It was a sight I shall never forget, if I live to the end of time. One man had a half crown in his pocket, and a bullet went through his pocket and buried itself in the half crown, and just bruised him.
