  • OUR FIRST GAS ATTACK Just as we entered the woods near Brocourt we received a welcome that sounded like a hundred thousand Fords--Gr, Gr, Gr, Gr, Gr, then a crack and a boom, boom, then someone said GAS. Scared? No, we were paralyzed--didn't know whether to put on our gas masks or turn and run. Finally our masks were on and then somebody gave: "Permission is given to remove face pieces." We would not mind the gas alarm so much if it wouldn't come around meal times. From Tar-Heel War Record (In the Great World War).
