approximately ten mins we'd have lain within the grass after we abruptly heard rifle photographs in entrance people. Electrified, we all jumped up and hastened to our rifles. Then the firing of rifles that was once happening at a distance of a couple of mile or a mile and a part all started gradually to extend in quantity. We set in movement immediately.

The expression and the habit of the warriors betrayed that anything used to be agitating their brain, that an emotion had taken ownership of them which they can now not grasp and had by no means skilled ahead of. On myself i'll notice a good restlessness. worry and interest threw my innovations right into a wild jumble; my head was once swimming, and every thing appeared to press upon my center. yet i needed to hide my fears from my comrades. i do know i attempted to with a will, yet no matter if I succeeded greater than my comrades, whose uneasiness i may learn of their faces, I doubt very much.

Though i used to be acutely aware that we should always be within the firing line inside part an hour, I endeavored to persuade myself that our participation within the struggle could not be helpful. I clung obstinately, nay, nearly convulsively to each concept that may possibly advance that desire or provide me comfort. That no longer each bullet reveals its billet; that, as we have been advised, such a lot wounds in sleek wars have been by means of grazing photographs which caused[Pg nine] moderate flesh-wounds; these have been a number of the reiterated self-deceptions indulged in opposed to my higher wisdom. and so they proved powerful. It used to be not just that they made me in truth think less difficult; deeply engaged in these concepts I had scarcely saw that we have been already fairly close to the firing line.

The bicycles in conjunction with the line published to us that the bicycle owner corps have been engaged via the enemy. We didn't recognize, after all, the power of our rivals as we approached the firing line in leaps. In jumping ahead each bent down instinctively, while to our correct and left and in the back of us the enemy's bullets may be heard notable; but we reached the firing line with none casualties and have been heartily welcomed through our hard-pressed acquaintances. The cyclists, too, had now not but suffered any losses; a few, it truly is precise, had already been a bit wounded, yet they can proceed to take part within the fight.

We have been mendacity flat at the floor, and fired within the course indicated to us as quickly as our rifles may let. thus far we had no longer noticeable our rivals. That, it appeared, used to be too little fascinating to a couple of our squaddies; in order that they rose partially, and fired in a kneeling place. males of my corporation needed to pay their interest with their lives. nearly at one and a similar time they have been shot during the head. the 1st sufferer of our staff fell down ahead with out uttering a legitimate; the second one threw up his hands and fell on his again. either one of them have been useless instantly.
