BOMB AND SHELL ATTACK, ANCEMONT, FRANCE
A peculiar buzz in the air, the rapid crack of machine guns, and a tremendous thug-bang; we knew that "Heiney" was after us. Some of us said our prayers a thousand times a minute while others ran helter-skelter in search for safety. Thanks to the big dugout that happened to be near.
