"After the battle all of the sur vivors were given servico stripes as veterans. At the battle of Vpres I was in a tree engaged in snip ing. When the artillery fire started I dropped and ran to a dug-out where I remained until the Ger mans started to attack. This was* ?ter we had driven back the sur prise attack. When the second at tack started I was in a tree firing at the Germans as fast as I could work the rifle, but there were too many and they kept coming. 'They spotted me and a search ' ht and a machine gun were rained towards me at the same 'ime. The second the light struck ivo i aroppea to me grounu, uui i wasn't quick enough and a ma- j chine gun bullet got me through the ? stomach. One bullet knocked a: piece from my bayonet and its lodg- j ed in my forehead where it is still. As I hit the ground, wounded, I lay with my arms stretched out. An advancing gun carriage ran over my arms, each wheel break ing them at the elbow. Strapped on Operating; Table. "When I regained consciousness I was strapped on an operating ta ble with a gag in my mouth. The German doctors were operating on me without using any anaesthetic. They saved all of that for their own men. "The doctors took an X-ray pi<v ture but could not locate tho bul let and they cut me open through the stomach. Being unable to lo cate the bullet that way they turn ed me over and ripped me open from the back. They finally located and removed the bullet, but I had to stand the most awful paini while they were doing it.

Word to Exchange. "When word came that we were to be exchanged there was great re joicing. but it soon changed to grief when later wo wore told that only the totally disabled were to go home. When they were picking those to go, we were lined up and the lucky ones were commanded to fall out and put in anpther line. I was to be left, but suddenly I went out of my head. I knocked one of the German guards down and also three or four of the prisoners. They watched me night and _ day for three days and nights, and final ly the German doctors certified that I was crazy and I was put on the exchange list. I had to keep up the deception for three weeks and when I was dually placed aboard an Eug Huh cruiser crossing the channel I hud an awful tinie convincing the captain that I wub not crazy. "Wo exchange prisoners were sent back to Canada and brought to the convalescent camp. Five of my particular friends were with me. One was totally blind and deuf from the shell concussions, one was out of his head, one lost both legs, and the other an arm. 1 came out of It tho luckiest of the bunch.
