I Knighton Soldier


Knighton Soldier In the Thick of the Fighting. DESCRIPTIVE LETTER. Writing to a brother. Driver John Jones, of the R.F.A., son of Mr and Mrs J. Jones, The Birches, Lloiney, says :—"We are in the thick of the fighting now. We are banging away all the time, and the Germans are shelling us day and night. We get but little sleep since we have been on this front as the noise of the guns is almost continuous. The enemy has got the range of our roads and can see us taking the shells to our batteries. We leave it till it is getting dark, and are out half the night regardless of weather, shells, or anything. The enemy are sending their star shells up all the time. They shell us un- mercifully, the shrapnel bursting about our heads. The horses are a little nervous, but we keep on as if it were all nothing, and we know we are giving them the same. The nights are darker, and we have to travel over all kinds of roads, and there arc large holes where their Jack Johnsons have bursted. It is very rough on us at times, but we say, "It's all for old England." We have some very large sums here with us. They send a shell 8501bs., and we drop a few of them every day. so we are smashing a few of them up. It is very wet and muddy, and we are up to our necks in it. Sometimes when the shells are bursting we have to get under our horses for protection. I hope to be with you all again some day, but we can't all expect to get back.
