France, January 14th, 1919. -THE INDEPENDENT, , Mr. Saunders, 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 signed. 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 border. i 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 IVE shells. 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. I remain, Yours, A home town boy, Sgt.
