SAYS CANADIAN OFFICER
CAN ADIAN LIEUTENANT DESCRIB-
ES (RONT LINE TRENCH LIFE
IN TETTER TO STUDENT
Accurate descriptions of living- con-
ditions in the front line of trenches
are given in a letter to a University
student\ from a Canadianized Sammie
who has been fighting in France ever
since war was declared.
The letter, which was somewhat
delayed by censorship, and incorrect
France, Sept. 10, 1917.
My Dear Cousin:-At present we
are in the front line trenches. I have
been out two months now on my sec-
ond tour and I certainly like it, and
intend to stick to it for the duration
of the war.
Patrols Active On Canadian Front
Patrolling has been rather active
on our front lately, but we get the
best of it. The Germans will not fight
when in close 'quarters. A chap who
was on our right tells a good tale of
a patrol. His battalion had sent a
strong patrol out recently to meet a
Boche patrol. Our patrol let Fritz come
right in, then got behind him-and
here is what the "chap in the front line
trench told me that he heard: "Throw
up your hands you-." The answer
was, "Kameraad! Kameraad!" The
The result was that the bunch were
all taken prisoners.
The Canadian patrol was expect-
ing a chase patrol from Fritz, so
they waited, and succeeded in captur-
ing them also.
Americans Too Careless
I have seen some of your home
unit. They are magnificient physi-
cally, but I cannot say any more. I
imagine they'll be like us after a few
trips in the line. They'll adapt them-
selves wonderfully and after one trip
'over the top"'they will pay more
heed to the principles of warfare and
not be so careless like so many; es-
pecially on the first trip over the
I am going out tonight with a party
to fix up some damaged trenches and

ing. I will be out until 3 o'clock in
the morning and return unable to re-
move anything except my coat. The
only thing to do is to cover myself
with sandbags and go to sleep.
Sandbags are a wonderful institu-
tion. They are made of hemp and
are used to build dugouts, but they
have a thousapd and one other uses
and I will tell you of a few.
Sandbags Used For Many Things
First, when one is cold, a number
of them used as a cover are the warm-1
est coverings one ever slept under. If
your feet get wet, pull two or more
bags over each foot and lie down for
a few hours. Your feet soon become
warm and dry. As a towel for the
hands, it is unequalled. When your
steel hel-met shines, owing to flares a
sandbag covering solves the difficulty.

his introduction, "were skidding on

much to criticise, and little of merit.
