I said I oarne from Criecieth. He asked me if I knew Portmadoc at all, and whether I knew him. Well, it was too dark to see who he was, but it turned out to be Mr Geo. McLean, from Portmadoc. The Huns we were up against this time were a livelier lot than I have seen yet. I have noticed here that we are the masters of the Huns with artillery. It is not often they shell our lines, but when they do our artillery rain shells on themâanything from ten to twenty for every one or theirs. In the midst of it all we manage to get lots of fun, and we are ali looking forward to 'the day' 'Keep the home fires burning.' URBAN DISTRICT COUNCIL.
