There is the marriage of a former

of his being torpedoed. His wife's
relatives live in Bruce, County Lim Limerick,

connected with the family's relations

The facts in this are are: the 42nd

on a certain date, and as is always the
case when possible, they were to clean
up the camp before they left. On the
night before the division was to be
moved a heavy ram started about 11

one knows that a tent can not be tak

and the transport and everything was
ready for the men. so the tents had to
be left. To make matters worse, early
next day it got so cold that every
thing froze stiff and then the tents
could not be moved until they thawed, ;
so for that reason practically all of
the tents are even now standing just!
