WELSH GUARDSMAN'S EXCITING TRIP THROUGH LOOS. Corporal J. Gough, Transport Section, 1st Welsh Guards, formerly of Warm Turn, Aberbeeg, was mentioned in Sir John French's recent dispatch for his gallantrv in the fight for Loos on Sept. 27. He received instructions from his ser- geant to take a limber loaded with trench tcols tlo brigade headquarters, "and never, while memory lasts," he writes, "shall I forget it. About half a mile before reaching Loos the shells began to fall around me like hail. The road was full of holes where 'Jack John- sons' and 'coal-boxes' had exploded, and the sights which met my eyes were far too dreadful to describe. Lying in the roadway were dead and dying horses and mules; also limbers, motor-cycles, and cycles and as I went through Loos houses were blown down to the left, right, rear, and in front of me. Inever knew exactly how I reached my destination, but this one thought urged me on 'Our boys have gone into action and perhaps are waiting for the tools. So I nerved my- self for the terrible experience, and I said, 'Come what may, I will .get there or die in the attempt.' I reached my destination, and after discharging the shovels and picks I returned, thanking God for having brought me safely through such an ordeal."
