Heroic Cheraw Company.
Cheraw.-Several -weeks ago the
- newspapers carried the story that a
-company of American troops had gone
too far ahead of the main body of at
'tacking forces and had been surround
"ed by the Germans to rseveral days,
when they were disc6vered and res
cued by a body of Canadians, being
then short of ammunition and rations.
-Letters from "somewhere in France"
now say that this was the Cheraw
-company (I of the One Hundred and
JAighteenth Regiment, Thirtieth Divi
elon) (Company I, First Regiment,
Gouth Carolina National Guard). The
company has been brigaded with the
British army and that is why so little
'was heard here of its 'work.
The company went into the war
'with 248 men and it comes out with
only 67. It lost in killed, wounded and
prisoners 191. Every officer with the
company was killed except Captain
1Gilespie, 'who is reported to have
been severely wounded.
It is hoped that Lieut. W. A. Mul
loy of this company, who was report
*ed killed a few days ago, is among
the .prisoners taken by the Germans.
