A MESSAGE FROM "SrrS
Experiences Of A Home Town Boy
Who Helped Fight Hun.
- f American Ex. Forces, "
Montsures, . France,
January 14th, 1919. -THE
Dear Sir: '
AYou may be surprised tot. hear from
me at such a late period of the game.
I have tried a number of times to get a
letter through but they got no farther
than the office. This is coming a little
late I think but just the same it may be
interesting to some people.
-I will try now to tell you a few of my
experiences with an Ammunition Train,
at the. front. Or doing duty in the blood -y
Argonne, Meuse Drive, Verdun Sector
of the "Western front, which started on
jp.e morning of the 26th September, 1918.
And lasted until the Armistice had been
We had finished our training at an
artillery camp and moved up within
about 5 miles of the scene of action or
about 20 kilometers from the German
We had been moving up ammunition
jf r about 8 days preparing for one of the
big drives that we called blasting our
way into Berlin." The ammunition that
we had been moving was for the 52nd
Artillery-Brigade 27th Div., attached
to the 33rd. Div. 3 Regiments of artillery
104-105-106 102 Trench Mortor Battery.
The 102 Ammunition Train had all of
the ammunition to handle. The 8 days
of steady Hauling had been 75s and 155s,
for the drive that started on the night
of Sept. 25th 1918, 11:30 P. M. on a 72
hour barrage. '
On the evening of -the. 24th of Sept. in
comes a rush order for SMALL ARMS
AMMUNITION at once for the DOUGH
BOYS to deliver .to the Hun's. It hap
pened to be my "lucky night" as every
one' called it when it came time: for you
J to go to the front on duty. So after a
little supper I made, preparations to go
on Medical Detail with the train that
was to go up. As soon as the SUN had
gone down, out of the little patch of
wood's where we were in camp, crept
46 Quad Trucks, under the cover of dark
ness we went at once to the dump and
received our RATIONS of PILLS for
JERRIE. . J .
The word was passed to keep 50 yards
between each truck because we had
to cross a hill that was in direct ob
servation of the Hun.- The first truck
had just crossed the crest of the hill
when out comes Mr. Moon, and then
every one thought that he would be
lucky enough to be the one on the top of
the hill when Jerrie opened fire, but- at
least half of the train had passed; the
jf rst danger mark when through the still
ness of night came that dreaaea sound.
Zizz Bang' and the first of Jerries shells
had fallen shot. But that did not make
he gunner give up hope for in about one
minute over comes another, another,
and another one short then one long.
It seemed as thugh he could not make a
hit. Then the alarm was sounded GAS!
Every one "Toot Sweet" . on with his
mask or land life preserver. Over goes
another truck and ZIZZ-BANG Crash!
And a load of 30-30 was put in the ditch
to stay there for a couple of days. No
casualities, Thanks to our leader The
GOOD GOD above us. Then the word
was passed to put 100 yards between
each truck and every driver only to glad
to use a little precaution responded' at
once to the order. t
Luck seemed to be with us for we
were riot spotted again until we had ar
ived at our destination. One truck pull
ed up at the time to the communication
trench to the first line and there start
ed to unload his cargo of Powder and
Lead for the DOUGH BOYS of the 33rd.
Div. to use in his message to the Kaiser
and his men. . '
Here one truck was knocked off the
road by the explosion of a G. I. can .as
the boys all call the big HIGH EXPLOS
After getting rid of your load the
truck had to move up as the road was
so narrow that it could not make it's
turn only at the cross roads, "which was
about one-half kilometer at the foot of
DEAD MAN'S HILL, as the French
Soldiers had named it some time in the
year of 1914. Our Dough Boys were in
trenched at the top of the hill, and the
Huns were on the other side in the val
ley and the little village. Forges by
name. But one good thing they left
enough " supplies after the barrage to
pay their room rent for the few houses
that were left in the little town.
My division was split in two parts
the Infantry was up in Flanders and the
Artillery Brigade including the 104th
105th, and the 106th F. A. 102nd Am
munition Train and the 102nd Trench
Motor Battery were attached to the 33rd
Division under Major-General George
Bell, Jr., that is the way I had a chance
to mix up in one of the greatest scrapes
or the war.
Had very little trouble the remainder
of the night, got back to camp just at
the break of day. Had a hot cup of cof
fee and then I hit the blankets for a
bout six-hours. And then over comes
a Jerry Plane to give us a "few drops of
welcome at the front or m that sector.
I don't know which, but out came a few
planes of the red, white and blue, and
off Jerry goes back home. No more
sleep then so up I had to stay.
Just my luck I could not go on duty
again that night as I had to go to the
Hospital with a shrapnel wounded com
rade. "The wound happened to be slight
so he has returned now." I had just re
turned and crawled into my blankets
when the first gun fired on the night
of the 25th day of September 1918 at
11:30 P. M. There'was no sleep for any
one within 5 miles of the line for a 72
hour barrage had just begun, and the
whole country was all ajar and the heav
en was lit up like a great electric storm
was on. . '
Cannons boomed and star sheels were
sent up. The whole heavens were like
a great flame. Something I had expect
ed but not on such a large scale. I can
honestly say that it was one of the most
beautiful sights I have ever witnessed.
The booming lasted for nearly 3 days
without an hours hesitation. Then once
in a while the guns would open up a
gain. Their objective had been won
the. dough boys were in the Argonne
Woods where they had to fight like H?
to keep the upper hand and hold the
ground the Artillery, had won for them.
While in this sector we were attached
to the 33rd Division from Sept., 10th,
1918 to Oct. 22nd, 1918. - Second attach
ment 79th Division Oct., 22nd 1918 to
i Nov.n 11th, 1918. I have just nineteen
battles and minor actions to my. credit.
on my Service Record. Some record I
should say. ; . -
I want to get back to the land of
DIMES and NICKLES and get away
from the FRANKS and SUES.
With best wishes to you and thanks
to the people back home for the support
by going over the top with every drive
that was put on there.
Yours, A home town boy,
