Hello, I am a huge history buff, especially where military conflicts are concerned. This kind of insight regarding a man in the midst of such a conflict is priceless to me. I found out about this site by accident yesterday while looking up other info on WW1, and am already caught up on all dispatches and letters. I find myself refreshing the pages in hopes of finding something new immediately - or perhaps something I've missed (not likely). As I read the letters and reports, and view the various pictures, my mind is putting me right there with him (as best my imagination can, having only movies to go by). Thank you very much for sharing this story! Sean McCormick Dallas, Texas, USA
