CAPTAIN DAN DAVIES' LAST LETTER. Simultaneously with the news of the I death of Captain Dan Davies, of the Welsh Regiment, his last letter came to hand. It was written last Saturday, and he was killed on Monday. He wrote:â "At 3.1.5 this morning the sentry on my -post saw some movement; he opened fire, and then challenged He missed his objective which turned out to he two young Germans (enrolled last February), about 19 years of age. They were brought to my quarters, and on being questioned by my took (who speaks German fluently) said they belonged to the 185th Jaegar Regiment. One wore his cross guns, and was n sniper. They were pleased to be in captivity, and said that our artil- lery fire yesterday caused them 150 casualties. Both were bright and intelli- gent youths, and one was particularly goed-looking. They were a. little hungry (natural to lads of this age at 3.30 .m ,); r and were thankful for some cold tea, bis- cuits, and bully. I forwarded them un- der escort to headquarters with the cook as interpreter. I hope he will come back, but I am afraid the brigade will collar him as permanent attached H.Q.â i linguist. Not that there is much dainty cooking necessary here, but every man counts these days. We are subj ected to ⢠I very heavy shelling here, and the weight of metal that come our way makes the ear hum even when a shell bursts a couple of hundred yards away. Direct hits on this dug-out deafens us for minutes together. Love to all and hap- piest wishes.âDan."
