Title

Our Great Grandfather's War Diary, item 6

Description

    • We recently discovered our Great Gandfather's typed War diary from Ypres. It outlines some significant events he witnessed first hand including the French-Algerian troops being helped back to the town having suffered the first gas attack of WW1. He was later wounded whilst he and a friend were taking shots at the German lines with a pair of Officer's filed glasses they found. His account of their subsequent escape is harrowing in its matter of fact approach to their unlikely success at escaping.
